The Honey Trap
by Preston Dane
THE HONEY TRAP is an 86 foot long Fibonacci Spiral, which is based on the “Golden Ratio,” a mathematical proportion found everywhere in the architecture of nature. The Honey Trap is composed of stacked interlocking hexagons, which refers to the bees who live in their own “metropolis,” and upon whom we depend to pollinate our crops. The project attempts to view what man does as a logical, natural, and connected extension of what nature does. The project embodies the interrelationship of math, art, science, life, and community. Standing 21 feet tall at its highest point, The Honey Trap is like a city on a hill overlooking the playa. At night, each cell is lit with participant-controlled twinkling LEDs, and a six foot neighboring flower serves to remind us that we are either harmonious with nature… or we’re not. The project will be burned after The Man on Saturday.
