The Botanic Garden

by 52 Weeks of Art

Despite the rain, snow and freezing temperatures a good audience of around 75 people turned out to see the full text of the Botanic Garden, Erasmus Darwin's most famous work, projected onto the original entrance facade of his former home in the city. The project put together by Peter Walker and Andy McKeown, saw this masterpiece accompanied by works of local poets.
Such an important works as Darwin's poem, can be lost or forgotten over time, and this project enabled a perfect opportunity for the vastness of the work to be explored. The full projection took over 3 hours to complete, with the projection providing both a thought provoking and aesthetic addition.
