LASER Talk: Au pied de mon arbre…

23.09.2021: LASER Talk, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, FR

“Some species are more attractive to us than others. Whether we like it or not, we have a hierarchy of living things. Until recently, animals took precedence over plants. Today, plants have reclaimed their place and are at the heart of countless scientific studies, artistic creations, discourses and theories. Some, however, are more desirable than others. The tree is one of these emblematic plants that we love. It is one of the main themes of this Rencontre LASER, part of the Roots & Seeds XXI European project. Biodiversity crisis and plant resistance, of which Leonardo/Olats is a partner.” (LASER Talk in French)

With: Amandine Cornille, Marjolijn Dijkman, Marc-Williams Debono
