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.
