Artwork Description



Lost Specimens is an ongoing digital herbarium for ‘Once Upon A Garden’, a digitally composited garden presenting a dystopian projection of a likely outcome of global warming. It depicts a world where humans now have to live with simulated images of plants and flowers because they have all disappeared from earth. It asks whether the preservation of nature is compatible with the goals of industrialised and industrialising societies, and in general is a reflection on what gets left behind in our pursuit of progress. ‘Once Upon a Garden’ is ultimately a GAN (generative adversarial network) trained on thousands of images of extinct and endangered flora from the Sahel region, where Linda was born and lives. It was created with the intent to be an installation that mimics walking through an artificial garden, and all the sorrow and beauty that this implies.

Lost Specimens features the dominant species that emerged from training the GAN model for the project.

While processing the outputs from the Once Upon a Garden GAN, some dominant species started to emerge. It felt important to record them in separate files, much like flowers are recorded in the herbariums that were critical in the conception of this project.

Lost Specimens re-interprets digitally elements of traditional herbariums and adds a new layer of information: encrypted information the scale and spread of cereal and animal farming and its contribution to the loss of wild plant life over the past few decades.
