HexSpexcast glass, 2012

Just as bees store their civilization within the hexagonal structure of the hive, cultural meaning and memory is stored in words. In HexSpex, the hexagon is embedded in an abstracted landscape form, together functioning as a lens for light to pass through, activating the object. This activation by light can serve as a metaphor for the ways meaning is created inside each one of us, combining with both our innate natures and our culturally conditioned selves.
