Coming Soon to the Crypt Gallery: Botanical Opticals

27 September 2021

An exciting new exhibition called Botanical Opticals is opening in the Norwich School Crypt Gallery this week, which will use state-of-the-art technology to bring a thrilling, immersive experience to Norwich. 

The innovative multimedia exhibition uses light projection, music, video and photography to explore the secret world of flowers as they grow and bloom. Artist Tim Platt comments: ‘In an era of global warming and climate change, it has never been more important to consider what is happening to the natural world in slow-time. I hope that at some level this work inspires us to think about how our world is transforming.’

The exhibition will feature large prints of kaleidoscopic abstract patterns created from photographs of flowers as they bloom, a high-resolution video installation and immersive, ambient soundscapes.

For this exhibition, Tim is working with audiovisual installation artist Benedict Braund from who has recently moved to Norwich from London.

‘It will be a fun, experiential show bringing together time-lapse photography and cutting-edge audiovisual technology,’ says Tim. ‘We’re hoping that visitors will be dazzled by the experience and find it a lot of fun. It’s bringing a completely new type of exhibition to Norwich and is designed to be enjoyed by everybody - whatever their age.’ 

The exhibition is open from 1st to 15th October 2021 (closed on Sundays and Mondays)

10.30am-4pm. Free entry.
