Terence Koh: Bee Chapel, 2016
In 2014, Koh left New York City and moved to Catskills. He admired the Indian philosopher, Krishnamurti, who taught that "To change society you must first start on a small scale with the single self." With that, Koh and his partner built a bee chapel. This experience was shared at Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York in 2016. He created a space with both spiritual and political undertones. I really liked this because of how in the Gallery, sound was made an important sensory element. Hearing the bees humming and a sound recording of two black holes colliding must have been a surreal experience. His work expressed that we live in vibration.
