Song for the Bees
media installation by Laura Zaylea
Presented in DAEL’s The Window Project
About the Installation:
Song for Bees is a multi-screen digital film poem that combines hand-processed super 8mm film and hand-dyed 16mm found footage with nonlinear editing and HD technology. The streaks of film chemistry and holes of light created by bleach become essential elements of this four-part celebration of the seasons. The installation includes Song for the Bees (Spring), Arrows to Light (Autumn), Letter to Winter and Dog Days (of Summer).
