A project in collaboration with: Trish Adams

A collaboration between Andrew Burrell and Trish Adams, consisting of a virtual environment in Second Life and OpenSim which is linked to a complimentary series of exhibitions in gallery spaces. Central to this ecologically sensitive artwork is the artists’ direct engagement with various aspects of bee behaviour at Queensland Brain Institute, where researchers are investigating cognition, navigation and communications in the honey bee.
