Diana Scherer






German artist Diana Scherer has been  collaborating with biologists and ecologists of the Radboud University in Nijmegen, and growing a portfolio of plant matter by encouraging roots to grow into molded forms dictating the pattern of growth and creating a unique natural art form, a root textile. They hope to develop this work into fabric or carpets and this year they plan to grow a root dress.
The fantastic thing about this possibility is that the roots fix carbon dioxide so carbon is fixed in the fibers, helping to remove it from the air.
