Plant Blindness: Jason Singh
21 September 2019 to Spring 2020
The Camellia House, Wollaton Hall Natural History Museum & Deer Park
Plant Blindness by Jason Singh is a unique and immersive sound installation in our unique Camellia House which uses naturally occurring ‘biodata’ from plants to create a musical score.
Artist, musician, beatboxer, and composer Jason Singh has been invited to create, in his own inimitable way, an auditory response to Wollaton. Initially drawn to the beautiful architecture and acoustics of the glass house, after a short residency Singh was later inspired by the (mostly adverse) conditions in which the Camellia plants which are grown – surviving amid some extreme environmental factors that this species is constantly fighting against.
Using technology to record the plants 'voice', we are drawn to hear their song of survival through a beautifully melancholic soundtrack which is played throughout the glass house.
This exhibition is free and open daily.
