Diana Scherer: Interwoven

Exercises in Root System Domestication

For the past eight years, Scherer has focused on developing the interdisciplinary project ’Interwoven’. This publication will discuss research, new craft and its relevance to biotechnology in addition to the artworks. Contemplative essays will play a central role in the conceptual design. Authors are Giovanni Aloi, Judith Elisabeth Weiss, Phillip Fimmano, Jiwei Zhou TU Delft and Norbert Peeters. In their essays, the five authors from the disciplines of art, design and botany reflect on the different facets of the project. In 2015, Scherer began developing the technique ’Interwoven’ from idea to material, grown dress – sculptures to large-scale installations.
