Plan(e)t offers a new viewpoint on plants with a series of artistic-scientific collaborations. A majority of the works in this exhibition were created specifically for the TAU gallery space, and most of them grow and change during the months of the exhibition. The subtitle of the exhibit, "Plants Think, Think Plants," declares its underlying logic: plants are "thinking" beings, and therefore we must think of them in more complex ways than we have done up to now.

Take a virtual tour of the Plan(e)t exhibit here. To view English subtitles, please hover over the video lower right corner and press the "CC" button. The subtitles will show immediately.
