We are delighted to announce that McQueens Flowers has been commissioned to create not one but two installations for the world’s most revered botanical exhibition - RHS Chelsea Flower Show
. The original art pieces will highlight the importance of bee conservation - Honey, I’m Home
, an interactive installation will invite visitors to create a bee which will contribute to the evolving hive over the course of the week. The second installation, Per Oculus Apum (Through the Eyes of Bees)
is an impressive 20m long by 7m wide tunnel which immerses visitors into the sensory world of a bee.#SaveTheBees
The interactive and immersive element of both installations asks visitors to consider the crucial role bees play in our ecosystem and the very real plight they face. Central to our education and research in bringing the designs to life has been Dr David Lawson, bee behaviourist at the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Bristol.
