Symbols, in whatever form they appear, are not usually isolated; they appear in clusters, giving rise to symbolic compositions, which may be evolved in time (as in the case of story telling), in space (works of art, emblems, graphic designs), or in both space and time (dreams, drama).
           J.E. Cirlot, A dictionary of symbols, 1971


In place of aura, there is buzz. Like a swarm of bees, a swarm of images makes a buzz, and like a new idea or trend, once an image (whether attached to a product, a policy, a person, or a work of art) achieves saturation, it has a “buzz”.
           David Joselit, After Art, 2013

The bee stands for systemized industry and obedience,
while the beehive is a metaphor for the control of
the proletariat. Eminem, “Berzerk”, 2013 (4:05)
