Compared to the obvious complexity of animals, plants at a glance seem relatively simple in form. But that simplicity is deceptive: the plants around us are the result of millennia of incredible evolutionary adaptations that have allowed them to survive, and thrive. Rob Kesseler is a visual artist and Professor at Central Saint Martins. As University Chair in Arts, Design & Science (2013-16) he initiated a series of events and opportunities for students drawing on his extensive links with the science community. Robert’s work sit at the intersections between art, science and design.
