ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Life in Focus: Through two diverse exhibitions, see where art and science converge and how global and local perspectives offer a renewed focus for living.

When a Tree Falls by Donna Davis

For When A Tree Falls, Donna Davis uses installation, video, projection and digital media to create works that evoke curiosity and contemplation of our interactions in, and with, the natural world.

By exploring plant ecosystems and the displacement of flora by climate change, she offers a renewed focus on the concept of kin between humanity and the species which share our natural environment. More info
