‘Natural Selection’ by Hilary Pfeifer is the current installation at the Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco. The collection depicts an imaginary world where plants have the ability to choose their partners the same way humans are free to do, despite horticultural laws of nature. Their choices "cross boundaries such as race, age, and gender."

The microscopic plant organism sculptures have all been given creative fictitious Latin names such as ‘Graveolens rejectus’ by the artist are being displayed in a temporary greenhouse display structure set-up within the gallery.
