Social Climbers, Squatters, Meat Eaters, Drifters…. we’re not talking people; we’re talking plants. Plant Adaptation Up Close cleverly takes human personalities and applies them to plants to explore their evolution and adaptation for survival, whether it be clinging to rock cliffs or eating other plants!
This extraordinary exhibit takes visitors on a journey into a microscopic realm unseen by the naked eye, providing a new perspective on plants through artistic photography. Imagine what an insect caught in a Venus flytrap might be seeing. Put on the 3-D glasses and discover!
Plant Adaptation is produced by the Botanic Garden of Smith College in collaboration with the Smith Microscopy and Imaging Facility, and Northampton, Massachusetts artist Joan Wiener.
