Photosynthesis Art Catalogue

Photosynthesis 2015

The exhibition at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh wants to shed new light on plants, using a broad array of (plant-related) perceptions. Included are fifteen series of photographic perceptions, two installations and a film program.

Shedding new light on plants
The world of plants as we have never seen before

Artists belonging to the Dutch art collective Tropism create new depictions of plants, using unusual, often scientific, visualization techniques that blur the lines between art and science. The use of x-ray, pinhole, electron microscope and infrared photography subverts usual assumptions and hints at the growing prominence of technology in the natural world. The results are unique artistic visualizations that offer a surprising and spectacularly different view on plants.
