'Shape the Hive,' an "experiment in interactive collaboration," seeks to remind us that the Internet was made to bring people together and provide worldwide connections that were previously unattainable.

Shape the Hive is a program that summons artists to choose a pod and submit their contributions online, with the end result serving as one large honeycomb-shaped piece of art. Interestingly, the name of the project derives from the concept of bees working together towards an end goal.

Submit your own piece to Shape the Hive and become a part of a beehive of activity. The best pod entry wins a $10,000 tuition scholarship. Stats for Collaborative Honeycomb Art Trending: Older & Mild
