Home Climate Gardens: Student housing - Bookshelf garden

Kerbel, Janice
Home Climate Gardens is a series of nine digital drawings which was a commission and collaborative project with Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University East Anglia and the Norwich Gallery. In 2002 I joined Tyndall's collaborative research effort as artistin- residence. Out of this grew a commission to develop a new body of work – Home Climate Gardens – making Tyndall's first artist-scientist collaboration. Each garden is determined by the climatic, architectural and functional conditions of a range of indoor environments (i.e. 'Council Flat: Wall-mounted gardens', 'Gym: Respiration garden'. While Home Climate Gardens take the form of detailed and perfectly plausible plans, each garden remains unrealised. Janice Kerbel
