Abstract:This project investigates the ideology and workings behind greenhouses, such as the Plant Biology Greenhouse of Urbana-Champaign. On the basis of interviews and participant observation, the author finds that greenhouses aim to change the way people think about our environment, enhancing the presentation of the conservatory with commissioned art from a range of media: sculpture, music, animation, and performance. The project provides a reflective analysis of personal experiences in the greenhouse and the role of nature in helping people to grow and develop.
