Tutti Frutti Kew Gardens, London, 25th May – September
Across the globe there are 240,000 to 500,000 plant species that bear fruits, of which 70,000 to 80,000 are thought to be edible. How many have you tried? Have you carved into ultra-exotic, pungent and even banned fruits like the durian, tarap, bullock’s heart, atemoya pitabu and kalaw?

Bompas & Parr have transform Kew Garden’s Palm House Lake a figurative fruit salad boating lake and participatory artwork where you can explore edible fruit.

Talk to the Plants
The plant installation on the Pinapple Island is contributed by Mileece, an internationally acclaimed multi-disciplinary sonic artist and renewable energy ambassador. Her installation turns plants into sensor-based instruments using TreWeavr™, a technology platform enabling Human/Plant interaction through sound. Presented as the installation series ‘Soniferous Eden’, TreWeavr™ has toured an array of prestigious museums including the Migros Museum in Zurich, MOCA’s Pacific Design Centre in Los Angeles and MoMA in New York.

Enter the Grotto
The Banana Grotto is filled with Bompas & Parr’s banana cloud, a fruit based weather system for your tongue. It is created using specially adapted humidification technology most regularly used in tropical fruit production. The high humidity level itself enhances taste perception as meteorology and pomolgy (the study of fruit) collide. The only way into the grotto is by boat.
