Interweaving study 

Grass roots 

Visual artist Diana Scherer collaborated for many years with science. Interweaving  is part of her intricate study of plant root systems. The roots of grass are harnessed and transformed. In this study Diana presents a nuanced exploration of humanity's relationship with nature and the eternal pull to shape and control it.

The innovative material research is a sustainable textile. The delicate white tendrils of grass in her hands might as well be strands of silk, while the sturdy yellow fibers of daisy roots recall the texture of wool. Nature's inherent patterns form the blueprint for her creations, echoing the belief that certain motifs and patterns in nature resonate universally.
