Buzz Sonnet 

Poster, 2020


Buzz Sonnet was an art exhibition that lamented the death of our ecosystems and biodiversity under the impact of the bushfires that took place in NSW late 2019. This was a collaborative project in which I was in charge of design and communications.

The challenge was to create imagery that was striking and poignant to evoke emotional response from the audience (social media and by-passers).

I researched and came up with the concept of a scorched honeycomb. A honeycomb is a bee's home and the loss of it means the loss of a place to live and take shelter from. It means death. It was both real and a metaphor for the disappearing habitats of billion biological lives on this earth. It was also a metaphor for this planet earth being on fire.

The scorched honeycomb warned us of that had been lost, and what continued to be lost if no actions were made.
