Cabinet of Herbaria

Art and Illustration: Exhibition

Cabinet of Herbaria is an installation selected to be exhibited as part of the Zero show at 1971 Design Space in Sharjah. The installation aims to trigger the public’s curiosity towards the UAE’s natural environment. Inspired by earlier strategies of scientific studies, the installation resembles a window into the preserved and visually dissected plants. Each plant specimen was collected on explorative expeditions into the desert and rural areas in Dubai, then subjected to a formal study via documentation methodologies, photography, hand illustration, and digital visualization.
