Annual exhibition for Waitākere Central Community Arts Council.
In the 1950s a scientist at the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research proposed to the New Zealand Government that they build a national research facility that could totally control the environment in which plants grew. That facility opened in 1970 and for forty three years supported research into how plants responded to the environment. Through film, archival material and sculpture Melissa Laing tells the story of a unique intersection of science, technology and social history in New Zealand.
