Amsterdam-based visual artist Diana Scherer can be counted among the pioneers of biotech art. At the core of her botanical installations and textiles lies a great curiosity about what neurobiologists call “the brain of plants”. Scherer studies plants and root systems and applies her knowledge about the intelligence of plants in her work. By employing a special technique using natural growth processes, she creates mesmerising and seemingly fragile tissues of plant roots which reflect a variety of organic structures. Scherer’s work is thought-provoking but above all embodies a poetic portrayal of the human urge to control nature, despite nature’s inherent intelligence.
