Installation by Lani Asuncion

Interactive Performance and Meet the Artist Event: Friday, May 24, 6-8pm

The Human Garden is an immersive multimedia series by artist Lani Asuncion that combines technology and nature, the work asks for a closer look at how both are connected. Asuncion has created an immersive video of the Arnold Arboretum. Visitors are invited to one at a time move their hands back and forth above the grass covered pedestal, this will activate a real-time interaction with the projected video, causing it to morph and grow within the space. This work encourages curiosity and play through interactive technology that invites visitors to imagine themselves growing with the plants, igniting excitement around our natural environment.

Lani Asuncion identifies as a multicultural Asian American artist who uses video, performance, sculpture, and plants to survey how different cultures meet and mix to negotiate experiences of loss, transformation, and belonging. Blending digital media with elements of nature Asuncion constructs interactive environments, like that in her HUMAN GARDEN Series to present alternative perspectives on conversations around green spaces and urbanization. Encouraging play and interaction in parks and green spaces.

The Museum will be closing early on Saturday, October 5 at 3:00pm for a private event.
