Hollow with the artist, Katie Paterson

This event took place on Monday 9 May 

This lecture was supported by the George Hare Leonard Memorial Fund.


Artist Katie Paterson and architects Zeller & Moye talked about how the University of Bristol's newest public artwork - Hollow - was created.

Joined by evolutionary biologist Dr Jon Bridle, from the University of Bristol's School of Biological Sciences, the team discussed how they worked together to gather 10,000 unique tree species from every country on the planet to build this unique artwork - a forest of all the world's forest in microcosm, spanning millions of years.

We would encourage people to view 'Hollow' in Royal Fort Gardens, which is open all year round from dawn until dusk.
