Colony Collapse Disorder Radio Series

Ryder Cooley and EE Miller are launching a radio series resonating around

The show will focus on humans and bees, using The Bees as a lens for looking at conditions in the world. We ask you to create recorded sound expressions, 2-13 minutes in length, which we will integrate into our bi-monthly broacastings on WRPI. Broadcasts will begin in January, 2008 and will be available as podcasts.

PROJECT BACKGROUND: Artplant Research Broadcastings
We are launching this radio series as a new phase of Artplant research.
ARTPLANT is a gathering of dreams, visions and resources. Through ARTPLANT we begin to establish time and space to imagine and build mutually supportive and sustainable life art communities. Through gatherings and projects we share ideas for practicing equitable,oppression-resistanting permaculture, shared resources and the cultivation of fruitful collective processes. For more information about Artplant please contact EE Miller:

This radio series will traverse the buzzing and despair of multiple
displacements and increasingly hazardous environments. As buzz facilitators we are foraging for nectars and locating the necessary visions and tools for imagining a sustainable hive. Through Colony Collapse Disorder radio broadcasting we hope to initiate the collapse and regeneration of new language systems by creating an ever shifting body of expressions to accompany our future Artplant swarms.
