Diana was commissioned to make an installation for Worton Organic Garden just outside Oxford. She drew bees in Adobe Illustrator and laser cut them from birch plywood. They are fixed about 4cm from the wall so that shadows are created.

Diana's first work with photosynthesis involved extracting chlorophyll from spinach leaves and making a light sculpture that used the property of chlorophyll to glow blood red under UV light as it releases the energy it absorbed from the sun.
