Between science, art and technology for a brand new Palazzo Strozzi experience

Carsten Höller installations between science, art and technology are used to build a very strong connection with their audience.

In this venture, Höller teams up with Stefano Mancuso, founder of vegetal neurobiology, a new branch committed to the understanding of plant intelligence and behaviour.

The Florence Experiment: thoughts behind the fun

The exhibition / installation  The Florence Experiment aims to explore a reflection about the relationship between mankind and plants, towards a new awareness of the way mankind know and interacts with a vegetable organism.

During the exhibition, Palazzo Strozzi is going to be a space ready for scientific and creative as well experiments; a laboratory about behavioural and emotional frameset for all living creatures.
