FASCINATIONS: GARDEN // An experiment conducted from 1898 to 1900 at the University of Leipzig used time-lapse photography to reveal the secrets and aesthetic captivation of plant movement and growth. The researchers photographed various types of plants for up to 28 days at a time to explain to the viewer the process of tulip germination or the effect of light on the movement of flower leaves.
