@ the Trails

Artist: Matt Spalding
Year: 2013

This outdoor, educational installation will serve to educate and inspire through an artful experience of the grounds and collections around the grounds of Cylburn Arboretym. @ the Trails is an app that explores the new role that technology plays in how humans experience the world by presupposing technology is fundamentally changing the way humans experience the world. The exhibition uses Cylburn Arboretum's existing collections of trails, trees, gardens, etc. as subject matter to explore the myriad ways that humans form a relationship to nature. Through the experience of a newly created app designed specifically for use at Cylburn Arboretum, @ the Trails investigates how technology supplements or hinder the experience of nature.

Partner: Cylburn Arboretum
