Artist Statement

Animation, 2015, 2’9”, ISEA2016 Hong Kong Open Sky Project Honorable Mention

The existence of bees and humans are interdependent.According to Albert Einstein: „If the bees disappear, the human being has only four more years to live; no more bees, no plants, no animals, no more humans.
As pollinators they have a huge value, irreplaceable for people and nature. From a monetary standpoint, the work of these small insects reaches (only in Europe) 14 billions euros per year!
All the huge diversity of bee species has one thing in common: the passion for flowers.
