Herbarium Vivum 2
Herbarium Vivum 2 (2018) is the second project by Driessens & Verstappen of a living herbarium. Eight native plants have grown in a very limited
space that is almost 2-dimensional, in this case an horizontal plane.
The plants are grown in the artists' studio, some under LED grow lights and others in daylight conditions. From time to time a photograph has been taken to
document the growth process from seedling to decay. This has resulted in eight photo series:
narrow leaf plantain,
Italian grape hyacinth,
common evening primrose.
The 40 images of Herbarium Vivum 2 will soon be published in the book To Mind is to Care, by V2_ publishing in Rotterdam.
