The Impossible Garden is a set of experimental sculptures, by Bristol artist Luke Jerram, inspired by visual phenomena at the University of Bristol Botanic Garden.

The idea came about after Luke’s nine-month residency at the Bristol Eye Hospital and BVI, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

Luke Jerram said: “As someone who is red-green colour blind, I’m fascinated by the processes of visual perception. In August we invited a group of people who were colour blind to test some glasses, which can counter the effects of red green colour blindness, and it was so interesting to watch as they saw a spectrum of colour they had never enjoyed before.”

It is open daily to Sunday 25 November 2018 from 10am-4.30pm.
