As part of our mandate is to fuse science with art (along with music and play), we thought it was high time that our tent at the Secret Garden Party – the main event of our year, our birthplace and our spiritual home – was spruced up with a bit of science-inspired trimmings.

Evy Jokhova – recent RCA graduate, proficient fractal illustrator and biological emulator – lent us her deft hands. For Dirt Day – sponsored by the Wellcome Trust as part of their fantastically filthy Dirt Season – she crafted phallic mushrooms, microbial constellations…

…and a sign for our cockroach racing track.

She even came armed with a pattern for vulva origami!
