New Exhibition: The Secret Lives of Plants! Until September 2021
Get ready to explore six large-scale, immersive art installations that showcase the UK's diverse habitats, from moorlands and meadows to coastal cliffs. Created by Vaughn Bell, you'll be able to pop up in spaces like meadows, hedgerows, sand dunes and coastal habitats.
After indulging your eyes, give your ears a treat. Stand beneath a sound dome and hear the inner workings of trees created by sound artist Alex Metcalfe, then listen to the melancholic sound of plants captured using technology by composer Jason Singh.
Before you leave, sit back and relax in the seating installation by architectural designer Paul Cocksedge, there's a wave of wooden arches that will let you feel at one with nature.
