2014, NOW! BUZZBENCH CROWDFUNDING project @voordekunst
   
     

I am crowdfunding to realize a sculptural bench of reed and bamboo that we can share with wild bees.
We tend to keep our distance from them but actually bees are far more interested in foraging for nectar rather than stinging us. They help pollinate plants and if we dare to take a closer look, they're amazingly beautiful!

The Buzzbench is a monumental bench in a citypark where visitors find a quiet retreat and at the same time a biotope for insects. With the Buzzbench I'd like to create a new public space that will bring our sensory perception to a higher level.
The shell shape of the bench will change and intensify the humming sounds of bees and hoverflies.
The bench embraces and shelters those inside and wraps the visitor into an atmosphere of quiet concentration.
