    Jae Hi Ahn’s art manipulates, shapes, and ultimately reimagines nature. She looks for a hidden life in synthetic materials. By seeking out the biological potential of man-made objects and places, she creates new environments that are evocative of botanical forms and landscapes, tributes to the many wonders of the natural world.

    Terrariums provide the ideal conditions for growing a wide variety of plants indoors, including orchids, ferns, mosses, and carnivorous plants. As part of this exhibit, Jennifer Williams, BBG’s curator of interior displays and the Washington Avenue gardens, has created artful displays showcasing these miniature environments under glass.
