Fischersund: Faux Flora


November 8, 2024 - January 26, 2025


This exhibition is included in a paid General Admission ticket, except on Free First Thursdays. On the first Thursday of every month, General Admission is free and tickets to Faux Flora may be purchased for $5 at the door.


Faux Flora is an immersive multimedia exhibition integrating scent, sound, sculpture, 3D-graphics, and photography to capture the five life cycles of a plant:

Germination, growth, flowering, seed formation, and seed dispersal

Faux Flora is a sensorial display of human existence shown through the lens of plants. The plant life cycle is thus superimposed on the life cycle of a human, and it takes form in imagined flora that springs from everyday human life experiences:

Birth, childhood, adolescence, maturity, and old age

In today's digital age, technology permeates every aspect of our existence and the distinction between natural and artificial is increasingly blurred. Faux Flora explores this idea further by creating our own world of conceptualized botany.
