This talk is aimed at urban dwellers who seek for closer proximity to nature and ways to live harmoniously with nature in our everyday settings. Discover a 'green' storehouse of beautiful and inspiring ideas on how to beautify your favourite spaces with nature with Charles Loh (Mossingarden), Lucinda Law (Within) and Olivia Choong (The Tender Gardener). We will be discussing and looking at a number of plants, their cultural significance and where they might be placed in various spaces. The talk highlights key cultural issues that trigger our desire to live closer to nature as more of our time is increasingly spent on the digital space. The talk will also focus on the practicality aspect of bringing nature indoors – tips and advices on how to how to care for your plants are some of the key highlights provided at the talk. We'll also be talking about how you can grow your own food while decorating a space. We look forward to sharing the latest ways of presenting nature indoors through various inspiring creative projects that will set the tone for 2016.
Bring Nature Indoors is part of The Art of Living series of talk organised by NLB and jointly curated by Lucinda Law who is the founder of Within- an online conservatory of nature-led and botanically-based lifestyle, culture and creative pursuits. The 4-part series boasts a unique introspection into topics that differs from regular programmes at the public libraries. Each session is moderated by Lucinda where she speaks to two invited guest speakers. It is the first project under Arts@NLB that celebrates the interdisciplinary nature of art at the design-themed space, library@orchard.
