Honeycomb Series #2

Honeycomb Series #2

Nancy Macko. Honeycomb Series #2, 1999.

Description:
The Honeycomb Wall, 1992-4, was comprised of 100 wood panels each 11 1/2” in diameter. The panels contained found objects related to honey bees, the geometry of hexagons and the chemistry of honey as well as printed images produced from linoleum blocks and scanned and layered computer-generated images output as cibachrome photographs. In 1999, I translated the digital images from The Honeycomb Wall into a suite of five prints called the Honeycomb Series. These large ink jet prints were printed with permanent inks on Arches cold press paper using a Roland printer. Each one captures a distinct configuration created by the architecture of the wall.
