A study of 317 endangered species of Rhododendrons resulted in an installation using part of the Maxwell's Family collection. 'Natural Archive' is 317 glass fused rhododendron seeds. This piece aims to present the issues of human interference with nature and the brief time in which the species are surviving. These glass objects are then displayed in a museum to be observed and inspected. Each piece was categorised into four groups, Vulnerable, Endangered, Critically Endangered and Extinct. The list of 317 named species was then meticulously set into alphabetical order Collaboration between Kayleigh McGuinness and Fionn Corbett.
