Alongside the Jameel’s seven gardens designed by Anouk Vogel is a plot reserved for artist to cultivate and experiment, via an annual commission. IN TRANSIT: Botany of a Journey consists of a garden grown from seeds that have travelled in the intestines of people that either live in or visit the city of Dubai. Most of the seeds we eat in our daily meals pass unnoticed and survive the process of human digestion, leaving our bodies undamaged and remaining germinable. Dubai as a global city and the business hub of the Middle East receives an average of 90 million travellers a year, coming from 270 destinations, across six continents.
