Bethnal Green, London.
Mulberry - The Tree of Plenty is a collaborative project by artists Sara Heywood & Jane Watt and Dr David Chau, Associate Professor in Biomaterials and Allied Subjects at the Eastman Dental Institute, UCL.
The project explores how the iconic mulberry tree (Morus nigra and Morus alba) can be used as a vehicle to stimulate discussion, debate and engagement in cutting-edge research and applications in biotechnology, heritage and contemporary engaged art practice.
Commissioned as part of Trellis: a UCL Culture and UCL East programme and supported by St Margaret’s House, Bethnal Green, E2.
