Lisa Corine von Koch is a Master of Fine Arts candidate in painting in the ASU Herberger College School of Art.

Lisa Corine von Koch's MFA thesis revolves around the current dilemma of the Bee Colony Collapse Disorder. The dramatic, interactive space encourages viewers to better appreciate the importance of the bee and to experience the absurdity of humans forced to overtake the function of the bee. The installation incorporates sculpture made of natural and found objects, video and performance work.
