One Tree, One Planet art

All are invited to interact with the ‘Tree of Life’ at the One Tree, One Planet exhibit, Feb. 4

Please join the campus community on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020 at the Weidner Center for One Tree, One Planet—a ground-breaking, biodiversity interactive projection created by internationally renowned artist Naziha Mestaoui in collaboration with scientists at the University of Florida.

Interact with the artwork and explore the Tree of Life to understand the connections between our species (Homo sapiens) and other organisms. A downloadable app allows you to become part of the artwork, merging your heartbeat’s rhythms with the projection, producing music patterned after the DNA sequences shared by all organisms on Earth.

One Tree, One Planet is a project dedicated to helping humans understand their connections to all life on earth, as well as how the earth can be protected.

The exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Cofrin Family Hall at the Weidner Center with a public lecture by Florida Museum Distinguished Curators Douglas and Pamela Soltis at 4 p.m. The one of many in the year-long celebration of the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity’s 20th Anniversary.
