An arts, science and horticulture collaboration. Funded by Exeter University and The Eden Project collaboration fund.
The Landscapes for life project is a collaboration between an Exeter University researcher, an Eden Project horticulturist and an artist. Inspired by a Phd studying our experiences of nature as we go through life. Particular focus was given to how and why particular natural setting become more or less meaningful with shifts in our life circumstances, relationships and well being priorities.
The River of Life sculpture, made of individual river boulders, describes the geographical life of a river. The sculpture is set in a garden that will mature over time, including a giant redwood and a dawn redwood tree.
