Karen Ingham

Artist Karen Ingham’s love for insects has produced a series of dresses designed to aid shrinking populations of bees and other pollinators, a growing environmental crisis that threatens our global food system. Featuring electron-microscopy images of pollen, Ingham’s “Pollinator Frocks” are treated with a nectar-like sugar solution that attracts and nourishes bees and their brethren. She has created outfits for separate occasions: day-wear to draw bees and butterflies and evening-wear for nocturnal critters such as moths.
