Infinite Herbarium aims to expand our experience of the vast, diverse botanical world - creating connectivity to plants and their threatened ecosystems.
In this Live at The Calyx session, you'll hear how artists can collaborate with companies like Google to create experiences that cross art and science. The Infinite Herbarium is a great way to engage people with the living plant collection. It's an experience that connects the virtual and the real.
Hear from a panel of experts about how the Infinite Herbarium came together as a project, where you can see it, how you can interact with it and how you might connect art and science to create engaging experiences.
