Film: A 3D sculpture built by 80,000 bees? Bee-have yourself!

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Personally, as soon as I hear the words 3-D printing I slip briefly into a coma. But when I heard the words 3-Bee printing, well, that’s a whole other kettle of fish. In this extraordinarily well-shot promo film for golden booze makers Dewars Whisky, the clever chaps have brought together one of the world’s best beekeepers, a sculptor and 80,000 bees to create a pretty outstanding project. Watch art and science make beautiful sculpture babies in this wait-for-the-money-shot work of genius.
