“Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.” Henry David Thoreau.
Tiny Taxonomy attempts to highlight the beauty and frailty of paradise’s most inconspicuous and often ignored players: the plants of the forest floor. By providing a partial inventory of some of the smallest operators of the forest ecosystem and by elevating these species from their traditional position to a more dynamic perspective at varying eye-levels, it is hoped that their highly delicate and intricate nature will be made evident to visitors of the garden. Tiny unpacks and re-presents the garden, inviting the visitor to consider the beauty of individual species.
