Sarah Peebles talks about buzz pollination while a member of the F.A.S.T. team paints flowers with flourescent dye tracking powder. These activities were a part of the 2008 art exhibit "Bumble Domicile", which itegrated a variety of elements focusing on pollination. A colony of bumble bees placed in a window within the gallery sat adjacent to this small garden, which was tended by local artists and youth (F.A.S.T.), whose interactions with its plants supplied data used to generate a virtual garden projected within the gallery - visualizing the genetic diversity that bee pollination creates. "Apiograph" was the title of the installation which created the virtual garden. See the video by that name, also here - as well as the F.A.S.T. page and other "Bumble Domicile" show details at Resonating Bodies (resonatingbodies.wordpress.com). F.A.S.T. = Flower Anther Swabbing Team.

Resonating Bodies is a series of integrated media installations and community outreach projects which focuses on biodiversity of pollinators indigenous to the natural and urban ecosystems of Toronto and beyond. It has a YouTube and Vimeo channel. Details at resonatingbodies.wordpress.com/.
