About the Exhibition:

Biophilia: Call of the Wild explores humans love of nature, and the need to connect to it within our built environment. Biophilia from Greek translates as “the love of living things”. At its core is the principle to connect humans with nature and as a result improve wellbeing. In our urban setting we yearn to connect to the natural environment. Held in The Mill’s Exhibition space, Call of the Wild is curated by Robyn Wood and features work by designers Enoki, Caren Elliss, Jake Shaw, Peter Walker, Sally Wickes and Robyn Wood.
