Hive Mind by Pathogens Hive Mind by Pathogens
This whole idea was inspired by the term 'hive mind' and by a character from the 'Metal Gear Solid' series called the pain, who had the ability to control large swarms of hornets at will. I'm afraid that is where the meaning ends. It's supposed to represent a human host being used as the 'Queen Bee' if you will, becoming engulfed by her swarm.

Don't get me wrong, i mean if you looked into it more i'm sure I could come up with some elaborate metaphor involving Durkheims theories of collective conciousness and it would sound completely legit, but in reality i just find the idea of someone being engulfed by bee's and used as a hive, and having them attend to your every demand is a really, really curious and sickeningly romantic idea.

Beautiful tones - the golden hues against the black is striking. It has a very elegant, regal feel, whilst also beig quite creepy haha :) Nice work.
