Everything is changing. But usually changes happen so slowly that we don't notice that something is changing. Change is essential for survival and vital for art.

In my lecture I will discuss changes in art, focusing on the 17th century and my contemporary stencil prints that are based on this historical period. I then focus on evolutionary changes in plants and show - with photos of plants at the cell level - how plants develop and thus increase their chances of survival.
