It presents a multi-dimensional artist-led ethnographic study on the effect of emerging for-profit technologies utilized within the world of beekeeping. The work points to the broader implications of these interventions across the larger agricultural industry, and offers a blueprint or call for technology that takes into account the perspective of bees and knowledge collected over thousands of years of human and bee relationships.

Testing model for a website. Purchased by 里奥凡 (Fan Liao).
“With a temporary archive installation, Het Nieuwe Instituut speculates on the possible contents of an archive for design and digital culture from the Netherlands. Who will save what—and how, and why—for future generations? Together with its visitors, Speculative Design Archive uncovers the value of both acknowledged masterpieces and forgotten treasures.”
“As part of the Speculative Design Archive, the Dead Darlings collective organises an anonymous auction of a number of objects that have been put forward by archive creators themselves. Each blow of the auctioneer’s gavel confirms the variation in interpretations of the ‘value’ of archival pieces.”
“During all parts of our design process, we work directly in code to make hundreds of smaller and bigger sketches and models. We make these to design visual elements, try out movements and interactions, develop layouts and content structures, find technical solutions. In the studio, we refer to these tests as variations. We work on them in an iterative way, and pay close attention to coincidences and mistakes that occur, as those often lead to new forms and ideas. Many variations end up not being used because they don’t survive selection or are technically impossible, some find a place in another project, but most never leave the studio. This is one of these variations, executed as a stand-alone object.”
