The Impossible Garden

University of Bristol Botanic Garden
13th July 2018 – 25th November 2018

The Impossible Garden is a unique set of new experimental sculptures, by artist Luke Jerram, inspired by visual phenomena.

The unique idea of The Impossible Garden came about after Luke’s nine-month residency at the Bristol Eye Hospital and Bristol Vision Institute (BVI), funded by the Leverhulme Trust.  Luke applied for the residency together with Cathy Williams, a member of BVI and a Consultant in Paediatric Ophthalmology at Bristol Eye Hospital. Cathy hopes this exhibition will encourage greater public understanding about the many processes involved in “seeing”, because families tell her that lack of understanding is often a barrier to getting support for children with many kinds of visual impairment.

The exhibition aims to enhance our understanding of vision and is open to the public throughout the summer. As visitors explore the garden, they will discover 12 engaging art exhibits, designed to stimulate debate about how visual impairments can affect our perception of the world around us.
