Immerse yourself in the world of the honeybee in BeeEye, a video installation by Cat Ashworth. Enter the hexagon shaped structure and be surrounded by the sights and the sounds of the honeybee. BeeEye explores the human/honeybee connection in an abstract, symbolic, and spiritual experience for the viewer.

The experience of BeeEyeis pure magic, as the viewer stands in the center of a six-sided video projection, listening to the hum of bees blended with a music composition by Eastman School of Music Professor Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez. As the images unfold, the visual message is about observing and connecting with the honeybee, and understanding the precarious position this tiny insect has in our ecosystem.
