Hortus Botanicus

dimensions variable, silk, cotton, ink,
umbrellas, artificial rain.
performance with rain-installation to print textiles.

This work was part of a the graduationshow which took place in the Botanical Garden of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, juli 2012.

I imprinted the plants that will move to other botanical gardens in Europe because the garden need to close it doors.
By covering these plants with filmed textiles and the use of the irrigationsystem I was able to imprint the leaves.

During the show there were periodically guided tours in the greenhouse after I turned on the ‘rain’.
The visitors could lively witness the appearing of the imprints.
