My bee installation was exhibited at MCAD this summer. I had the idea to make a “blanket of bees” and it was an obsessive thought that I could not get rid of until I tried various methods to make the blanket. My “sketches” included the variations as to how I made the blanket using handmade paper, hand stitched paper, and finally, a fuzzy blanket.
