  4. A BumbleWEEE escaped from Toxic Scorpion's Transformation lab and goes out to explore the world.
    Outside the BumbleWEEE bumps into many characters conducting "ordinary lives..." Maybe a projective test for all of us to ponder upon.
    Featuring a remixed version of the "Flight of the BumbleBee," composed by the great artist N.R. Korsakov in 1871 - Abughraib Prod drum and bass

    The flight of the Bumblebee is like a flow, a catharsis in which absorption in the here and now of the experience is total, somewhat like what happens during the artistic process, when watching a movie or reading a book.

    Similarly, the electronic bumblebee's intense, erratic and curious flight through the surrounding reality is in dichotomous contrasts with the stereotypical behavior of the characters dressed in white. In the repetitiveness of their actions, their "work" becomes meaningless, some sort of self-fulfilling ritualism that neutralizes the actors' identities, as opposed to the frenetic and seemingly aimless flight of creative thinking.

    Our message is intentionally ambiguous because we want to suggest a cue, an image on which everyone can project their own world, with their desires and unconscious fears.
    In particular, dealing with the issue of waste we want to raise awareness over a real problem, putting the viewer in front of his/her own relationship with "waste" in a broader sense...
    Waste is discarded from our lives, removed from our sight and conscience, just like we brush off an annoying insect.

    The message and the images in the video are somewhat acid and deliberately provocative, disturbing or unpleasant. This is not necessarily negative, it is more like giving the spectator an opportunity to reflect upon his or her daily actions and maybe their fears. As if they where looking at themselves through the unpredictable flight of the Bumblebee.

    "One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” F.W. Nietzsche
