Roots






Nurture Studies by Diana Scherer:
Rather than letting the flowers grow in open soil, she has forced each plant to develop within the confines of a vase. Only at the end of the process does she remove the plant’s corset, exposing roots that retain their shape as an evocation of the now absent vase.
Her description of vases as "plant corsets" is brilliant. I'm amazed at how rigidly the roots hold the structure of their original container.
