The Rotterbam-based artist collaborated with Dutch beekeepers to guide the meticulous insects into filling the metal frame with perfect hexagons of beeswax.

While most artists use traditional materials like pen, paper and paint, Korean artist Jihyun Park uses something altogether different, incense sticks. Rather than adding, he takes away.
