Using bees to diagnose disease - Susana Soares

In a poetic fusion of craft, entomology and diagnostics Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a blown glass vessel in which the hyper-acute sensitivity of bees to minute indications of certain diseases may be observed. The bees will move from one chamber to the other in response to the presence of diseased cells in the breath of the user. There is something wonderfully arcane, even alchemical about this idea. That such a readily available indicator might be more sensitive and effective than state of the art spectrography is oddly satisfying.
