In consultation with scientists and beekeepers Manitoba-born artist Aganetha Dyck has developed an artistic practice using hundreds of bees to “mend” the broken and second-hand objects she collects. The resulting honeycomb-fused sculptures raise issues about waste and recycling as well as environmental concerns as bees and other pollinators are facing extinction due to climate change and pesticides.

“The Floating Piers” is a giant floating dock system nearing completion on Lake Iseo in Italy. 220,000 high-density poly-ethylene cubes will be covered in 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric to create an epic walkway 3 kilometers long.
The project is the brainchild of artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, known for large-scale installations. Although Jeanne-Claude passed away in 2009, Christo has continued to pursue “The Floating Piers”, originally conceived together in 1970. More progress shots below!
