just for fun and curiosity i placed this lady in one of my plant pots a few weeks ago. i decided that she may have had enough of being in the sun surrounded by insects and soil. i placed her in my palm and watered her down. she melded so nicely to my skin and thus the idea was born

A few days ago I was watering my plants and made a nice little discovery. It wasn’t a global discovery, as glue had already been invented. But I found that with just water and tracing paper, I could easily create a physical bond between my girls and flesh-and-blood humans. I tested the first ‘prototype’ on myself and liked the result. So I thought, as always, that I’d get others in on the fun. The first person I thought of was my friend Hala, who has a marvelous face. I Whatsapp-ed her a succinct (and apparently innuendo-charged) message: I need your face. I prepared the girls and took them over to Hala’s this morning. It was only when I took a photo of her punch-me-in-the-face-now-gorgeous daughter Kiki that the girls resembled bumblebees. Hence the title of this series. I think I’m going to have a LOT of fun with this project. And I hope you enjoy it too.
