Installation of Slovenian honey

Slovenia is a nation of beekeepers and is the only EU member state with its own protected autochthonous honey bee.
The first association to bees which is made, is of course a honeycomb. From this natural form, we extracted a basic geometric shape - hexagon. From this basic element, we weaved a transparent wooden grid. Why wood? It was a logical choice since wood is a strategic building material in Slovenia.
The space in which the installation is located is in the shape of a dome. This way, the hexagon grid also adapts to the form of the space, becomes optically partially thicker and thereby further enhances the appearance of a honeycomb.
