Biodiversity is one of the two installations that MINIVEGAS were asked to create for the Natural History Museum in London for their new Darwin Centre. Biodiversity examines the relationships between all living things via a real-time, randomly generated and ever-changing visualization of the evolutionary Tree Of Life. Infinite species - that are alien, yet familiar, and inspired by our own plant and insect kingdoms and the natural rules that govern them - are born from the Tree and brought to life before the viewer using state-of-the-art 3D graphics. The installation conveys the vast scale and beauty of the biodiversity umbrella.

MINIVEGAS used existing data that the museum's researchers have gathered from real life to build a computer generated universe. Because of this, these taxonomic or phylogenetic trees can be vast, and it was important to convey that scale.
