TC cartography is a project that began in late 2015 aimed at using tissue culture techniques to map the 22 million year old symbiotic relationship between bees and plants. Pollen samples are collected from hives, time stamped, and cultured in the lab using pollen tissue culture techniques. The result is a living map of haploid plantlets which in sum describe the flight patterns of bees as they move through the environment: a map of the complex and often invisible forms of inter-kingdom hospitality that exist within ecosystems.
