Tuin als Kunstlab

18 September 2017

Five students of the ArtScience and I/M/D departments of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) participate in the art project Tuin als Kunstlab (Garden as Art lab) and present work inspired by communication with and through plants. 

Do plants enjoy literature? Are they moved by the language of a famous writer as for example Tolstoj? This is what artist Anastasia Loginova researches in her project. Can you see or hear what a plant is feeling? Jan Köhler's audiovisual installation collects the signals sent by plants and transforms them into visual images and sound. With the aid of sunlight, Sunna Svararsdottir lets you experience what it is like to be a plant and Veerle Pennock's project was inspired by the findings of a research that supports that classical music influences the size of a plant's leaves. Jesus Iglesias Galvan has installed a plant inside an expanded version of a Clinostat, a scientific instrument with a no gravity environment.
