My group choose to work with bees and to make a statement about their declining numbers. My sculpture is a mixture of a bee/insect hotel. The idea is that it gives bees that don't live together a place to lay their eggs and to have a place to rest. My sculpture will include small ponds which can contain fish and water plants; plants would grow on the alternating sections, providing food and shelter for bees and insects. If I could actualize this sculpture I would place it somewhere inside the Great Plains Nature Center. They have areas that are intended to help Kansas wild plants grow unattended.
I realize that the design would be a fun thing for children to climb on, but I feel placing it in one of the "wet lands" area in the Nature Center, this would discourage disrupting the sculpture.
