It is trying its very best to stay hidden: but would you be fooled by its fake nature? This synthetic pollinizer, a conceptual project by artist Michael Candy, may intuitively repel us if we found it in our ‘natural’ flower fields, but it has been successful at attracting bees. These robotic flowers may serve to further the pollination by bees, while keeping them safe from pesticides. Save the bees! Peculiar image of the week.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
