Listening to the singing

The other day, I visited the hives in Kaisaniemi with my stethoscope. With the muffled silence of the snow, the bees’ singing was clearly audible through the wood of the Langstroth hives. It is the faint sound of the bees as they keep each other warm and entertained through the cold months, slowly eating their sweet reserves of the warm season.

Melliferopolis experiments with new ways of understanding bees, beekeeping and the ecology of the hive. The project examines the role of honeybees and other pollinators in an urban context and explores the many differing relations between humans and these insects.
