STOMATA 2020

STOMATA 2020 Is a science-art collaboration between a visual artist/electron microscopist and an ethnobotanist. The project revolves around plant physiology, ethnobotany and climate research.

Scientific photographer Linnea Rundgren is imaging the stomata of culturally significant plant species, using a scanning electron microscope. The aim is to make a traveling photographic exhibition and a book on the topic of plant physiology, plant use in indigenous cultures and climate change research. The plants used for the project are carefully selected in collaboration with ethnobotanist Kathleen Harrison, based on their relevance for various human cultures throughout history.
