Melanie Jackson talks about past influences, current interests, and some of the themes she intends to explore during her residency. 'The Urpflanze' takes as its starting point Goethe's notion of the 'primal plant', exploring the Botanical Garden and plants as a starting point for thinking about form and the generation and ownership of knowledge.
