Bee Film ep.04

Un-stack the pyramid of thoughts,
and look at one brick alone
Bee wonders about the Hive
and even Sanity itself.

The BEE drama season finale!

Many people will have their Covid-19-Year art pieces; this Bee miniseries is mine.
A common bee discovers himself disconnected from the hive society, and begins to consider his purpose and directions, independently, and for himself. He flies around with a fresh eye to situations and roles, and questioning and refining his basic assumptions about the world, perception, and reality.

He can fly easily with his own wings, but doesn’t feel like he has to. He can create and indulge in marvelous ideas and experiment as he pleases and to amuse himself.

Puja HB

It feels like puja season, and the Summer’s Horse Bodhisattva shrine is over. Presenting the movie-ette version.

Try to put a sculpture into a media-rich environment like Instagram, and you quickly see the use of series, video, storytelling, and music, it enlivens the subject. The Art becomes a character in the center of a potentially star-building narrative system.

I create actual stuff, things, objects. I act with things in my environment; tools, studio, garden, home. I’ll continue to, because that what living is to me. Meanwhile, I don’t know what to do about the rich-media online environment. I like dipping into it, making a few comments, but I don’t really need it for anything, and it is a lot of work to maintain it well. It is ultimately about finding a place that can fully support all your madness, delusions, and hallucinations.

How to explain the Bee, is, many media influences together, without more connection than happens in a person’s (mine) Mind. A continuous surf session on the phone while laying on the couch during Covid-19. Here are the elements and their sources, listed:

Lucy Price, and Megan Slattery, for motivational self inspiration.
Emma Pryde, for Glory Kitsch
Alexa Lee, the Bee Gardener
Racheal Bunting, for unlimiting exaggeration and metaphor
K Drama, for rich soup narratives and graphic design
WebToons, for serial stories
Emma Rodseth, for noticing everything, and bee Poet.
Afreeca.com, for livestreaming
The Hangers, for understanding and encouragement.
Peter Sparling, for A Month of Goldbergs

All my work now has a strong narrative content. I imagine and get to use more cultural connections than when I was an austere minimalist, as I was years ago. Of course, all-hail materials and process, but I want to fool around more now.

For Documentation of Record, this blog here is a much better medium overall. It is all ultimately about finding a spot that can fully support all your madness, delusion and hallucination.
