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.
