BUMBLING

inSPACE Development

It's a giggly party in an awkward teenager's bedroom and a pink champagne tinged summer fling. It's every crush you've ever had, the feeling of wings buzzing inside you, and the scent of eucalyptus in the morning. It's a Tuesday night rave in a suspicious looking warehouse and you're the only one sober. It's the taste of honey, sweeter than you've ever had, pooled on a cold, silver spoon.

It's a history class in tessellating hexagons, mounting anxiety and every type of yearning. A lesson about bees and loneliness and that boy you made out with behind your Nan's garage when you were fourteen.

It's 2022. The seas are rising, the bees are vanishing, and you're worried we'll be next. Welcome to the end of the world. Pop on your heels and come dance.
