Colony Collapse Disorder comprises a series of neon sculptures with wiggly drawings that represent the choreographic movements bees enact while communicating the locations of their food supplies. However, in this series of irradiating light drawings, the diagrams are erratic and loose, representing shaky wavelengths and biased maps, suggesting that the species’ social architecture might be falling apart. As a fact, Colony Collapse Disorder is the name of a syndrome that communities of bees are suffering worldwide, and one that is leading to the threat of their extinction vis a vis their disorientation.
