Sculpture 7’ x 4’ x 9’
Zzzzzzz is a wooden captain’s bed fitted with wax frames that houses 4 hives of honeybees.  Last February, I took the sculpture on an itinerary following the mobile beekeeping industry. Destinations included the largest pollination effort on earth: a February almond bloom in California that supports almost half of the commercial beekeepers in the country.
