The UC Botanical Garden invites you to celebrate First Friday’s in the Garden!
Video in the Grove: The Pollinators by Sarah Rara
First Friday at UC Botanical Garden
June 5, 2015
6:00 – 7:30 PM
Video Artist Sarah Rara will join us to introduce the video she made with footage taken in the UC Botanical Garden. Bring a picnic and enjoy this film under the Garden’s towering Redwoods in our stunning amphitheater.
The Pollinators focuses on the insects, birds, animals, and vectors that
pollinate flowers. Filmed against brightly colored backgrounds that both
attract and distract pollinators, the video explores wild color spaces,
modeling the ultraviolet-rich color range perceived by insects that extends
beyond human vision and the RGB colorspace of video. The Pollinators was
filmed over the course of a full calendar year to document a complete
annual cycle of flowering with sound by Luke Fischbeck.
The Pollinators is generally shown as a video installation, running as a
non-narrative video loop structured by color from Red to Ultraviolet. This
is a rare one-time-only screening of The Pollinators outside of the video
installation and loop format, to honor the native plants and pollinators
of the UC Botanical garden at Berkeley that inspired the film.
Cost: $10 Adults/ Free for children under 12 years old
