Color and Light







If plants had eyes, what would they see? What would they focus on? The development of vision took place over millions of years. It is thought that vision started with the development of light-sensing cells that tracked the passing of day and night, allowing living organisms to align with circadian rhythms. Through evolution, eyes became increasingly differentiated, forming rods and cones that eventually led to vision as many seeing organisms currently experience it. These images respond to the supposition that one area of focus plants might have would be the brilliant colors produced to attract the attention of pollinators.
