What is Wax?

Wax: Or the Discovery of Television among the Bees

A Video by David Blair

The bizarre fictional story of Jacob Maker, weapons-guidance designer and committed beekeeper. When the bees drill a hole in Jacob's head and insert a television whose supernatural images control his will, Jacob enters an hallucinatory alternative reality.

On May 23, 1993, WAX tooks its place in cyber-history when it became the first full length film ever broadcast over the Internet.
