The Florence Experiment
April 24 - September 10| €14
Jointly devised by Carsten Höller and Stefano Mancuso, “The Florence Experiment” is a site-specific project by artists Höller and scientist Mancuso. Its goal is to combine art and science to study the interaction between plants and human beings. The public is drafted into the project thanks to two monumental slides allowing visitors to slide from the 20-meter high loggia to the courtyard. Carsten Höller is well-known for his work on the interaction between art, science and technology and for his installations focusing on public participation. Mancuso is a founding father of “plant neurobiology,” which focuses on plant intelligence and sensitivity. Hours: Daily, 10am-8pm (Thursday until 11pm).
