‘Interactive Herbarium’ is inspired by Korsmo’s weed charts and the WEEDS - FRIEND OR FOE exhibition at the Natural History Museum at the University of Oslo. This work was created in attempting to represent a herbarium in a new way - not as a lying flat sheet but as a picture with a strong visual potential. Combining the herbarium with a game - find 5 weeds - I have tried to attain several objects: to make this product helpful for training memory by recognising plants and learning about them, to show that the weed/not weed division is conventional by demonstrating the beauty of both “classes” in its variety. Try to guess right the 5 weeds - it is not so easy!
