Science Gallery Bengaluru presents PHYTOPIA - a digital pop up exhibition. We bring together engineers, scientists, designers, artists and biohackers to create an experience where visitors can explore and experiment beyond the kitchen, the lab and the farm.
Plant-like life has been around for about 3000 million years. They have witnessed the birth and death of species, have travelled across continents on the heels of explorers, seeded cultures around the world and may soon become the first species to colonise mars. Humans have tamed them in farms, laboratories and green houses and extracted cures to epidemics as well as sources of addiction. We can only imagine what the plants of the future will look like as we race towards editable genomes, bionics and Food for All!
