Virtual Museum Tours: University of Copenhagen - Letter to a Cycad
‘Letter to a Cycad’ is a 360° digital experience of the living botanical collections in Copenhagen. You can navigate 360° around in the historical Palmhouse using the controls on Youtube or moving your mobile device – Enjoy!
The film is a visual homage to the historic Palmhouse in Copenhagen, and a reflection on the evolution of plants and our human impact on the planet. Using a fictional voice of the late botanist Frederik Liebmann (1813-1856) who found and described the cycad species Dioon edule, the oldest specimen in the Palmhouse, the film explores life histories and the current biodiversity crisis.
In January 2022, 'Letter to a Cycad' gained a VimeoStaff Pick Award and has received over 11,000 views.
