The Bee Effect
Walnut Creek, California | Stainless Steel | 17' x 20’ x 8’
Chaos theory asserts that the flutter of a butterfly’s wing can create a significantly different future, demonstrating the interconnectedness of all things and how even the smallest actions matter. The Bee Effect started when the artists imagined a small seed traveling on a gust of wind from Mt. Diablo to this corner. They captured the seed’s potential to create a monumental bouquet of poppies, with an industrious bee checking on his work. Notice the glimpses of blue skies through the sky tubes within the flowers to kindle inspiration. The artist team hopes that viewers will consider how they can create sparks of goodness to produce beautiful outcomes for the world to enjoy.
