  • For the ISEA2023 symposium Epicuro Lab wants to present the development of the “Working Plants from Afar” artwork and the results of the different activities that involve the local community and revolve around awaking emotional connection with the plant world. At the same time, these activities invite to reflect on human immigration and the dependence of humans on plant specimens.

    The ephemeral installation is in processes of germination of the seeds of the plant. The activities will take place in April of 2023, during the blooming period of installation’s flowers, at the Museum of History of Immigration of Catalonia, Barcelona (MHiC), Spain.
