The Pollinarium at York Mediale
1st October 2018- 6th October 2018
at Artists Garden, York Art Gallery
Visitors can book time slots on the day – just visit the Artists Gardens. Step inside the spectacular domain of the humble bumble bee in this family-friendly installation.Located in the Artists Garden behind York Art Gallery, The Pollinarium is a place where time slows down, scale is expanded and our vision enhanced to more than human.
Our senses define our experience of the world and each living organism experiences a different reality. Follow the bee’s journey as a pollinator through its own eyes and ears, experiencing its many superpowers first-hand. Life appears in slow motion for our flying friends, as they process four times more visual information per second than us humans.
The Pollinarium will enhance our perception to help us see, hear, and feel the natural environment in new and enriched ways.
