'Spring Swarm' is a celebration of new life and the importance of collective behaviour.
Most honeybees swarm and look for a new home during spring. Once the scouting bees have found their new home they encourage other bees to agree on the new location by performing a dance. If the other bees agree, they will dance in return.
Each honeybee has their specific role to play within the swarm and hive, all working together in a delicate but powerful community colony.
Swarming can be seen within other animals. In the face of climate change 'Spring Swarm' encourages us to tap into what we instinctively know. A swarm mentality encourages us to use our intuitions, act instinctively towards our environment by celebrating and protecting our natural world.
