Aganetha Dyck is a Canadian artist from Manitoba who takes ordinary objects such as shoes, buttons and figurines and turns them into exotic, delicate and sometime humorous art. In the following series, Dyck covered figurines with honeycombs and beework to reveal the intricacies of communication that exist between the two species.

In an interview to Mason Journal, Aganetha Dyck said:
“Honeybee communication research continues throughout the scientific and beekeeping world. Scientists and beekeepers, as well as dozens of international artists, plus a growing number of global citizens, are increasingly concerned with the health of honeybees. Communication between species is urgent. Research continues to try and prevent honeybees from disappearing from our world. The reason for the concern of disappearing honeybees is mainly due to the honeybees ability to pollinate over 40% of the world’s food supply.”
