Last week I was working on my project that is a fusion of employee engagement, community mobilization, co-creation, and honeybee artistry. It is my hope in 2012 to place live social networked ipads or smart phones in the hive and co-create an experience between employee engagement, social media, community, art, and honeybees. I will work at having sponsors for the hive with funding going to support research and intervention on honeybee colony collapse disorder.
Yes, I know, the project is way out there. I also believe that we need to start thinking very differently inside our hives and organizations if we are to find new and powerful methods and models of engagement.
This year is still part of my learning and a test. I have invited the honeybees to work with 6 notebook computers, 2 copies of Assorted Zingers, a number of pairs of eye glasses and a coffee mug.
Here are three pictures from the installation:
