Bees riddles

The activity book was created as a result of collaboration with Aladin Borioli, an artist, researcher, and beekeeper. I conducted an interview with Aladin titled ‘Becoming a Bee’, which was published in Elementy magazine run by the Fine Arts Academy in Cracow. This interview explored neuroscientific research on bees and delved into some esoteric aspects related to symbols associated with bees, such as the bee’s hum and the hexagonal shape. Being inspired by our conversations, I played with these symbols and created an art zine containing 24 visual riddles. I tried to work with the hexagonal shape and build narratives around it, asking how symbolic thinking provokes the philosophical inquiry and cognition of our positions in the world.
