OLIVER DARNÉ is a french guy who developed a crazy project: to produce Miel béton or concrete honey.
A graphic designer and visual artist by trade, OLIVIER DARNÉ began his investigation of bees in 2000, when he first placed a single beehive on his house in Saint Denis (France). Following that experiment with the installation of a dozen hives on the roof of city hall, Olivier was fascinated by the idea of sending bees out into the city as “prospectors” of the urban environment.
Since urban bees can’t find much nectar in sidewalks and roadways, they gather in what Olivier Darné calls the interstices of the city: parks, balcony planters, empty lots, rooftop terraces, roundabouts, and tree-lined streets.
So OLIVIER’s Miel béton, or concrete honey is being produced left in the northern Parisian suburb of Saint Denis.
A beautiful project!
