Darwin and his fabulous Orchids

You rarely get such an aesthetic view on evolution: Charles Darwin’s manuscripts unfold for the viewers, who become part of his journey on his research ship “HMS Beagle”.

Blossoms of orchids spread their beauty and fill the entire dome of the “Mediendom”. The spectators are in the midst of the elaborated shapes and will learn everything about the botanical tricks of the orchids, who have a very special way of distributing their genetic material.

It is not surprising that these plants are champions in the art of specializing for a certain habitat. Equally unsurprising is the fact, that this production of the Mediendom and the Christian-Albrechts University in Kiel won several international design awards.
