9781616890766: Bee

Of the ten million or so different species of insects on our planet, none is more fascinating than the honeybee. Magnified hundreds to thousands of times with a high resolution scanning electron microscope, honeybees become architectural masterpieces an elegant fusion of form and function. Now available in paperback, Bee presents sixty astonishing photographs of honeybee anatomy in magnifications ranging from 10x to 5000x. Rendered in stunning detail, these photographs uncover the strange beauty of the honeybee's pattern, form, and structure. Comprising 6,900 hexagonal lenses, their eyes resemble the structure of a honeycomb. The bee's six-legged exoskeleton is fuzzy with hairs that build up a static charge as it flies in order to electrically attract pollen. Wings clasp together with tiny hooks, and a double-edged stinger resembles a serrated hypodermic needle. These visual discoveries, made otherworldly through photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher's lens, expand the boundaries of our thinking about the natural world and stimulate our imaginations.

About the Author:

Rose-Lynn Fisher is an artist working in photography and mixed-media. She has a bachelor of fine arts from Otis College of Art and Design.

Review:

"As Verlyn Klinkenborg writes in his introduction to Fisher's book, Bee, 'there's nothing general about a honeybee'-and her photographs bear that out." -- LightBox, Time magazine

The images in Bee are the kind of machine-made line work Durer himself would've envied, infusing tiny creatures and surfaces with the depth, insight and majesty they deserve. -- Discover.com

From photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher comes BEE - an incredibly artful, thoughtful exploration of the beautiful complexity of bees and the larger natural patterns it bespeaks. Fisher blends the immaculate scientific precision of electron microscope imaging with the aesthetic sensibility of art photography to produce 128 pages of breathtaking revelation that expands the boundaries of how we think about these remarkable creatures and nature at large. BEE is without a doubt one of the most visually stunning, conceptually ambitious photography books of the year. - Brainpickings.org

"Princeton Architectural Press has done it again, producing a book that is as beautiful and tactile as it is thought-provoking and educational." -- Make magazine

"BEE is another kind of book altogether- a work of art celebrating science, or science celebrated in art." -- American Bee Journal

Descripción PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Bee is a book of photographs in magnifications ranging from 10x to 5000x. Presenting views of the bee s eyes, wings, antennae, hair, sting and more. Bee aims to inspire surprise, curiosity and awe through the unique perspective provided by scanning electron microscopy, melding art and science in these images. When our frame of reference is shifted, the interplay of observation and imagination can inspire new ideas, connections and applications. People are generally very surprised by these images, and actually stop to look and consider them. Children, who often love insects, are fascinated by seeing what a bee looks like very close up. This is therefore surprisingly a family book, as well as a book for photographers, artists, designers, gardeners, environmentalists, engineers, architects, those interested in bio design and bio mimicry. From the author: I believe that by seeing what exists in the micro world we may become more sensitised, mindful and caring about our familiar daily realm. My hope is that Bee will stimulate greater appreciation for the bees, more interest in learning about bees and learning from them too. We easily lose sight of our dependence on bees. Who thinks to thank the bees for our orange juice? For pollinating the blossoms of all the plants that produce our food supply; one of every three bites we take is dependent on bee pollination! Or to stop a moment and consider that bees must draw the nectar of more than two million flowers to make just one pound of honey?. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29781616890766
