Honey Bees are in decline.
They have been described as the 'canaries in the coal-mine' telling us that the way our agricultural system has gone is no longer sustainable. But that very agricultural system that is killing our bees is also dependent upon these insects. Without bees our crops would go un-pollinated; fruit and vegetables would disappear from the shelves and even products like meat, coffee and chocolate would be affected.
So what would happen if mankind had take on the role of the bee? How would the Government provide for this new role within society? How would domestic life change?
I designed a range of pollination tools and a seed harvesting kit that would become recognisable objects within the domestic environment of the future I created.
