Workshop: Ghost Plants
This a mini course for artists, designers, amateurs and everyone interested in the Art&Science practices. We will remove the cells from flowers and leaves and translate their form into a digital existence. The workshop is based on the project Ghost Plants by Laura Rodriguez which dwells on the idea of an afterlife for non-human entities. We will have a small lecture on art and science projects and vegetal entities such as forests, flowers or plants. Then we will start an experiment to remove cells from your samples. A second session to work on the pictures and create 3D models of your experiment.
No experience is needed, just willing to have fun!
Let’s celebrate women in science and art with decellularized flowers!
