The French art collective Parti Poetique has created a project dedicated to raising awareness throughout Europe on the alarming decline in bee populations. Known as the “Honey Bank”, and using the clever tag line “Time is Honey”, the project allows folks who are concerned to create bee savings accounts. In return for cash invested in saving bees, depositors get a promise of future returns paid in honey. The Banque du Miel installations are popping-up in France, Britain, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
Thanks for this! I have been wondering about this art on les berges in Paris.
