A wooden box serves as the shell for the iridescent world inside. The work consists of a series of frames, each of which contains a backlit wax drawing and an audio track that is activated by the visitor’s presence, which reproduces the buzz of bees in a hive.

The chosen frequency, like the title of the work, 432hz, refers to the vibrations emitted by bees and the sounds of nature. This auditor sensation is supplemented by the intoxicating, sweet perfume of the honey produced by the bees.
