Bees emanate from a transparent sculpture, that reminds us to a bee hive. The prism in the center generates rainbows, which are reflected onto the surrounding walls. The video is projected through the rotating sculpture and creates its shadow in the center of the projection. 

Physical space is transformed into an ethereal world inhabited by the spirits of nature. Chorals, bees and hummingbirds emanate from floating Rainbowmakers that rotate in space and reflect onto the surrounding walls. It is a dimension where life and impermanence intertwine. It is a liminal zone where extinct creatures and endangered species haunt the spectator through the artifice of technology: that very modern form of magic that is able to recreate alternate worlds and imbue them with life.
