Irene Moon and the Begonia Society are part of the 2nd episode of GX Jupitter-Larsen's new online variety show, A 5-Minute Hour. We include a 1-minute Microtheter on various insects and other invertebrates. These are coming once a week from his studio and Irene Moon will be part of the next four (and hopefully more)!
The Macroptheter is small theater, generally filmed under a microscope and the actors are those that are more difficult to see.

As part of the recent exhibition "In Collaboration with Earth" at the Glass Box Gallery (UC Santa Barbara), I presented a series of museum specimens with related artifacts. The first drawer of insects is all regional bees to Santa Barbara, California. The second drawer focuses on the Western Monarch. Discussion and Microtheater about the insect boxes were performed live during the exhibition and can be revisited on Facebook. In short, the insects are the stars!

I am pleased to announce a new collaborative project called Big-Bee for the exploration of bee natural history traits via images and morphology. This three-year National Science Foundation funded project is a collaborative effort across thirteen US institutions and we will be digitizing bees from all over the world. Love bees, keep an eye on this project to see many lovely images.
Big-Bee is also supporting a few new arts research projects, including a radio series called The Buzz, inspiring new Irene Moon performances and video collaborations. Please keep in touch and find out more via the Big-Bee website at http://big-bee.net/. Buzz to you!

A new performance by Irene Moon uses R software programming language to make music. As quoted from the beepr documentation: "beepr is an R package that contains one function, beep(), with one purpose: To make it easy to play notification sounds on whatever platform you are on. It is intended to be useful, for example, if you are running a long analysis in the background and want to know when it is ready."
It is ready!
