This caught my eye from the Arts and Ecology blog this morning. A festival at the South Bank Centre in London celebrating insects in art and the art of being an insect. The post is worth a look to take in the clever programming which is international, inter-disciplinary, and community-led. There's something on Biomimicry from Architect Michael Pawlyn, fashion, comedy etc etc. This PESTIVAL sounds amazing. Neuroscientist Beau Lotto creating a large bee hive in the Queen 'Bee' Hall. 80% of creatures on earth are insects according to the blurb...I'm not friends with some species...but I would be very curious to take in this event.
*For a link to Michael Pawlyn's Architecture go to this brilliant website Exploration. Read about Janine Benyus and Biomimicry here.
