The Garden of Evolution - an exhibition by Lily Hassioti
Published On Tue 5 Apr 2016
A visual arts installation by 4th year Fine Art student, Lily Hassioti previews at the University of Dundee Botanic Garden on April 28th.
‘The Garden of Evolution’ is an interactive installation which explores the role of technology in the evolution of man, extending the human senses and re-shaping communications.
Lily has used pebbles and rocks to create QR codes which, once scanned using a smartphone, will play sounds and voice messages. Visitors are encouraged to enter into a conversation with their surroundings and decode hidden messages throughout the Garden.
‘The Garden of Evolution’ is part of Lily’s final year project which will include a smaller exhibition using soil at the Art, Design & Architecture Degree Show in May.
Lily said, “I’m really interested in the way technology is involved in everyday life and the parallels of evolution in plants and humans through technology. Speculatively, my work will discuss how technology could be the next evolution for humans”
