When asked to design a dining table experience for Seattle Art Museum’s annual fundraising dinner, we turned the dinner guests into insects. It was, after all, a collaboration with Sarah Bergmann, inventor of the Pollinator Pathway. Seated along a “garden path,” diners tied bee wear around their necks, donned bug glasses, and enjoyed the buzz.
