Exercise nr. 24
May 2021

Gerðarsafn - Kópavogur Art Museum,  Iceland.
Exploring plant based identities through a photographic setting in a museum where guests are offered to pose to mark a starting point of their plant becoming journey. This setting was intended to explore participation within a formal context. A Plant Personality Test was available through an Ipad, alongside a selection of plant portraits showing participants of the Guided Tour and a studio setting showcasing plants in a city setting. Participants put on a plant category vest and then mount their phones/cameras on a tripod and capture this moment. The installation was part of a design exhibition called Follow Us which in turn was a part of Design March, Iceland’s largest design festival.

Follow Us
The exhibition introduces selected works by new and emerging designers, recently arrived on the Icelandic scene. The designers have all attracted attention and excitement for their early works, each in their own field.
