Nature+Technology = Art. Experience amazing video and sound installations at Digital Nature 2019, an evening outdoor art exhibition at the Los Angeles Arboretum from February 27 to March 3. Events are available now.
Contemporary artists project their work onto the lush landscape of the Arboretum. Inspired by the natural world and technology, the artists explore themes as diverse as butterfly wings, bird songs, heavy metal, and inter-active digital wildflowers.
The L.A. Arboretum transforms into an outdoor gallery where you can wander to view the unique, site-specific works of art. Some are interactive, a few with music, others silent. All are illuminated. The evening includes a no-host bar and food will be available for purchase.

In 2016, the Arboretum hosted for Digital Nature: An Evening of Techno Botanical Art in the Garden. Inspired by the Arboretum’s long history with film and television, a group of acclaimed contemporary artists presented video and interactive digital works.
For two nights, our landscape, along with the plants and people who inhabit it, fell under a spell. Artists seized upon our defining botanical themes and scientific aims. Some affirmed the basic assumption of a botanic garden—a place for the appreciation and study of plants. Others saw the environmental flux beyond.
