Open Wetlab

Opening Errorarium at Hortus botanicus Leiden

23-8-12 16:00
Hortus botanicus, Rapenburg 73, Leiden

From now until mid-September 2012 the arcade machine ('Errorarium') of Adam Zaretsky in which plants are grown can be found in the 'Wintertuin' of Hortus botanicus Leiden. This machine contains the model plant for DNA testing: Thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana). Several selections of this kind can be stimulated by visitors with light and sound in order to let their chlorophyll come to work. The arcade machine could also be found on LLowlab last weekend, the laboratory island of Lowlands.

The opening will take place on Thursday, August 23 at 17:00 pm, with the following speakers:

  • Adam Zaretsky (bioartist)
  • Prof. Robert Zwijnenberg (Leiden University)
  • Rogier van Vugt (Hortus Leiden)
  • Lucas Evers (Waag)
