On a recent visit to Boston’s Museum of Science I was blown away by Austine Wood Comarow’s mural Human Connections “painted” with polarized light in 1986. When you view the piece through different lenses you are able to see completely different images- dancing bees and bits of well-known cubist paintings are just a couple.
Here is a great video about the process of making this piece! Comarow says she started thinking about non-human forms of communication and chose bees as her inspiration. She also describes hexagons as “interconnecting geometric figures that symbolized a network of communication”
