    Paul Smith BE•HIVE Special Limited Edition - UK Pavilion Milan Expo 2015 - Wolfgang Buttress
    BE•HIVE Special Edition - UK Pavilion Milan Expo 2015 by Wolfgang Buttress. This book explores the story behind the author's art installation, BE•HIVE for the UK pavilion for the Milan Expo 2015. Included in this special edition is a signed, embossed drawing, limited to 1000, a soundscape in special vinyl, six prints of the exhibition, all presented in a special wood slip case with a gold hive. Exploring the role of the bee as the pollinator of a third of all the food we eat and their worrying decline, BE•HIVE creates a vision of the British countryside, ending with the stunning hive itself; a twelve meter floating cube constructed from a lattice of honeycombed steel fitted with hundreds of LED lights. This book is an all-emcompassing visual account of the design and execution of this installation, including the design of the giant hive, the food on offer and the accompanying soundscape. Also included are interesting pieces on bees and their creations, from honey based recipes to the science behind their various 'Dances'. Limited edition of 30 pieces.
