If you look closely, you will see the snail on the cut up page on the box and discover it again in one of the story, in pictures, writing and pop up. You can also discover it online together with all the stories that compose Theater of Vegetal Appreciation.
Theater of Vegetal Appreciation* is a hybrid publication on paper and online that is part of the « Roots & Seeds XXI. Biodiversity Crisis and Plant Resistance » project.
It is based on the contributions —notebooks sketches and writings—, podcasts, photographs and exchanges produced by the participants to the workshop « Cartography of a Garden » that took place in the near suburb of Paris on September 30th and October 1st 2021, cut, reassembled and woven together in stories.
The online publication is available on the Leonardo/Olats website for all to browse and read in a free and hypertexted way.
The printed publication takes the form of a box containing 9 booklets that unfold to reveal the stories that can be read in a combinatory manner.
This publication, designed by Etienne Mineur, is shown during exhibitions and special events. Its debut is at Ars Electronica Sept 7 -11 2022.
