Artist Dornith Doherty on capturing images of seeds from around the world
Dornith Doherty is an artist whose series Archiving Eden features photographs of seeds and seed banks, which exist all over the world to preserve plant species in the case of a catastrophic event. She joined q's Tom Power to talk about why seeds can be poetic, how seed banks represent both optimism and pessimism, and what role art can play in educating people about climate change. Doherty's exhibition Archiving Eden: Exchange is on now at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Toronto until Sunday, May 3. You can see photos of the exhibition, which shows the power and resiliency of seeds, in the gallery below.
