For Whelan’s new film, which is central to the exhibition, diverse places and people are brought together in a voiceover-led journey. Amongst others, the locations include the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, the oldest non-clonal trees in Europe and a coin tree in England that was poisoned by generations of votive offerings. The voice of renowned paleobiologist George Poinar Jr., who discovered the oldest ever plant sample in amber, accompanies the striking imagery. His research was the inspiration for the Jurassic Park novel and subsequent films.
