Circle of Bees Inc. (Do you want to see our logo?)

We are the original punk-rock art corporation on a mission: to protect and expand beekeeping culture and pollinator habitat in places where people live.

We choose the sub/urban pollinator as our symbol: they are our flitting, glitter-winged angels whispering stories of cities more like gardens, farms, orchards, forests, meadows., and wild natural places, and They are curiously effective community organizers, cross-pollinating an agrarian rewilding renaissance in the first-world. As their protectors we invoke the great folk tradition of natural heroism as a pan-political, intensely personal response to an existential threat in a deeply cynical age.

Yes you can join the revolution at the dawn of the Anthropocene. Let the EcoScene begin!

But is it art?

Mission

We choose the sub/urban pollinator as our symbol: the winged messenger, cross-pollinating a movement towards radical permaculture! The great transition in the first world is underway at the dawn of the Anthropocene! Let teh EcoScene begin!

Circle of Bees is built around sub/urban pollinators, especially honey-bees. These are curiously effective community organizers. We meld state-of-the-art tech, local folks, and traditional arts to create a utopian art that actually exists. Our art demonstrate the adventure, beauty, and comfort of cities and suburbs built around conservation ecology and natural stewardship of wild things.

Bees facilitate our generational imperative, which is a techno-agrarian revolution and rewilding: as fast as possible so that no one gets hurt and as carefully as possible for the same reason.

Circle of Bees invests in aesthetics as the critical component in creating a safe, confortable, and fun revolution. We invoke the great folk tradition of natural heroism as a pan-political, intensely personal response to an existential threat in a deeply cynical age.
