Just as a flower attracts a bee seeking respite and nourishment on its jouney, art can serve as a traveler's beacon for sustenance and renewal. Bellflower offers this bee's eye view, while inverting nature's order of scale; we are made diminutive in the shadow of this enormous blossom. As we make our way to ascend the skies and peer down on the world below, Bellflower calls us to look up; to be at once the walking human and the flying insect drawn to the nectar of a remarkable view.
