Like it or not, we live in a global world where decisions made elsewhere directly affect our lives here. But a new exhibition in Auckland details the fight back by artists, people - and natural forces. The Hive Hums With Many Minds is a mixed-media event which opened its second stage this week in the monumental Silo Six venue at Winyard Quarter. Inside these vast cement silos, artists from across the country are employing videos, photos, sound and computer simulations to discuss infrastructure, interdependence and the busy hive that is our globalized world.
