Gianna Maria Gatti’s book The Technological Herbarium (subtitled: „Vegetable Nature and New Technologies in Art Between the Second and Third Millennia“) is a study of ‚interdisciplinary’ works of art that exemplify the increasing importance of science and technology in artistic creation. Her analysis, however, goes beyond that of a journalistic or curatorial survey of artworks. Her work embodies the invention of a strong philosophical concept that enables the glimpsing – in the coming together of nature and new technologies in the domain of art – of a new real.
