My design is based on observing organic geometries. I wished to depict a step in a bloom’s life that goes beyond it’s short pink burst; their natural visitor, bees. For years, bees have faced severe colony collapse. We depend on them not just for honey, but for pollination. I want to show the need to respect them. Bees are beautiful, industrious, and worth noticing among the cherry trees. As the combs move outward from the center of the bloom, they spread out and grow in size. Bees grow from within them and rest over them, before they fly out.
