Visual artist Diana Scherer is one of the pioneers in 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 the intelligence of plants in her work. She employs a unique technique with which, using natural growth processes, she creates mesmerising and seemingly fragile tissues of plant roots with various structures. Scherer's work is thought-provoking but above all a poetic portrayal of the human urge to control nature versus natural intelligence.
