Under Ana’s art direction, and in collaboration with the Gropius Bau team and Ah!Kosmos, NEEEU has designed and developed a unique narrative experience using video, audio and augmented reality that is part of the exhibition from 8th july 2022.
Meet the semi-fictional bee species Apis Gropius, which leads visitors on an immersive tour through the Gropius Bau’s atrium.

The Apis Gropius experience is built with a technology that allows it to recognise features of the space. This approach to UX and technology allows the visitor to enjoy a seamless experience and focus on the art piece. The AR visualises moving bees, hives, floral and botanical spaces, and swarms. Through them, visitors will follow the story and bee evolution, raising questions about the importance of bees to our ecosystems.
