The Beehive (2018)
On July 4th, 1975 Juanita Nielsen, low-income housing activist, style icon and journalist, known for her large beehive hairdo, went to what she believed was a “business meeting” at The Carousel Club, Kings Cross, and vanished, never to be seen again.

The Beehive is randomly generated by an algorithm and has over 1334 versions each probing new aspects of the mystery of Juanita’s disappearance.
