Ethnobotanical Station

Commissioned by the New York Hall of Science for ReGeneration, artist Amy Franceschini has created a mobile fieldwork station that aims to challenge the dominance of ”modern quantitative science as compared to the long tradition of qualitative indigenous knowledge through an inventory of distinctive tools, exemplary specimen and mappings that explore new ways to relate to the plant life around us.” 

E.S. is one of the many projects undertaken by the FutureFarmers artist collective. They are “artists, researchers, designers, architects, scientists and farmers with a common interest in creating frameworks for exchange that catalyze moments of “not knowing”.
