Plant-blindness is a term used to refers to people’s inability to see or identify the trees and shrubs that surround them. It is a phenomenon that is becoming more common as greater numbers of people live in urban areas and disengage from the natural environment.
Redcliffe-based artist collective, Carte Blanche, have reconnected with nature, drawing attention to the diversity of trees that are found in the Moreton Bay Region. Through collaborative and individual works these artists reflect upon the importance of the natural environment, and how it connects us all.
