Project producer :Stefan Iglhaut, Berlin Content Robots and Exhibition Design: Lawrence Wallen, Berlin Content research:Dr. Bettina Drescher, Berlin Technical realisation: Fraunhofer Institute, Dortmund Patron: Goethe Institute Tokyo Co-operation:Fujisaki Office Inc., Tokyo Robot garden was a commissioned work to develop a garden in a pavillion in the international Garden exhibition (Pacific Flora). Working from layout of the baroque garden in Worlitz Germany to inform the circulation paths images used refer to both to drawings of botanical specimens under the first microscopes in the 17th century to images obtained using the latest electron scanning microscope at the University of Basel. The result was an exhibition about the European garden and the botanists who document it from the earliest machines for viewing the invisible to the current generation of visualisation technologies. The exhibition broke new ground in using artistic strategies to make visible the unseen and to present through the use of robotic systems the internal structures of the world that surrounds us.
