In early 2017 The Metropolitan Museum of Art (the MET) released over 400,000 public-domain images from its collection, available for unrestricted commercial and non-commercial use. The open access collection dates back to 8000 B.C. and includes objects from 100 geographical locations.
'Botanicals from the MET' curated by Lilium Burrow presents a selection of objects from the MET’s open access image collection. The exhibition includes botanical watercolours, 19th century photography, a Minoan gold hairpin, etchings and a 17th century silk textile fragment.
One highlight from this show is Spiraea aruncus (Tyrol), a cyanotype from British artist Anna Atkins which marks an important historical acquisition by the museum, its earliest photograph by a woman.
By clicking on the images in this exhibition, you will find links to their sources on the MET's website where further information can be found about the origins of each unique object.

Model/Modal combines painting, drawing, photography, and 3D modelling in a way that attempts to navigate the self as bodiless, existing increasingly in the margins of physical reality and non-physical (cyber) spaces. The images center around two central identifying themes, that of a veil and that of transparency.
From travel photographs of a grandmother’s adventures, to vintage magazine cut-outs and botanical illustration, the artists in Fleeting Moment use both analogue and digital assemblage to explore moments of material, environmental and societal change.
This is an exhibition of recent work and works in progress by Lilium Burrow.
Closed on Monday is an online interactive 3D space that hosts monthly exhibitions. An experimental project between artist/curator Lilium Burrow and interactive designer Xavier Burrow, COM was designed as a grungy, abandoned cyber warehouse-turned-gallery. COM is an expansion on the gallery/ARI model as a dynamic space that is globally accessible and always open (even on a Monday in Sydney).
Walk or fly around the space from anywhere and at any time.
