Symmetrical Beehives – Sculptural Concepts by Ren Ri

Ren Ri is a Beijing-based beekeeper and artist. An odd combination to be sure, but Ren’s crossover from beekeeper to artist works. His creations are bee-based as well as bee-built. Ren is the one responsible for the concept, while the bees are responsible for the structure. His first bee-inspired series was entitled Yuansu I: The Origin of Geometry which was a collection of maps rendered in beeswax. With its success, Ren decided to create a sequel. Yuansu II is a collection of five three-dimensional glass beehives where the bees have created an otherworldly structure inside.
