Abstract mellifera is an on-line interactive environment in Second Life which is linked to a series of real-time exhibitions in gallery and museum spaces. Central to this innovative, ecologically-sensitive artwork is the artists¿ direct engagement with various aspects of bee behaviour at Queensland Brain Institute, where researchers are investigating cognition, navigation and communication in the honey bee. The artists¿ poetic and scientific interactions with the bees inspired the development of mellifera¿s experimental human/computer interfaces that provide new modes of sensory experience for both virtual & real-world participants.
