‘Tree of 40 Fruits’ Featured in Atlas Obscura
As the winter season arrives, iSchool Professor Sam Van Aken’s Tree of 40 Fruits may look like any other on campus. However its amazing relevance still is there, as Atlas Obscura recently detailed in a feature on Van Aken and his scientific achievement.
“It’s a Tree of 40 Fruit, a Frankenstein mashup of art and science that, as its name suggests, produces 40 types of fruit,” the article reads. “This particular model, called “Tree 75,” is one of about a dozen others the artist has cultivated.”
