| With a beautiful design by Mainstudio with a dust jacket and a range of beautiful paper types

| An innovative research in grown plant root textiles and material by artist Diana Scherer

Visual artist Diana Scherer (1971, DE) is one of the pioneers in bio tech art. Scherer lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where she studied fine art at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Her work comprises botany, installations, textile and biotechnology. Scherer explores the relationship of people versus their natural environment. Through her installations she examines the boundaries between plant culture and nature. 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.  

Recent shows include Intelligence of Plants Frankfurter Kunstverein, Biennale of Sydney 2022, Earth Matters; Textile Museum Tilburg, Still Life -Foam Amsterdam & Himalayas Museum Shanghai, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and  Fashioned from Nature at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and Shenzhen.

Diana Scherer was selected by the jury of the 2016 New Material Award as the New Material Fellow. She was awarded the fellowship for her project Interwoven. The New Material Award is a biennial prize organized by Nieuwe Instituut in cooperation with Fonds Kwadraat and Stichting Doen, that challenges artists and designers to develop and apply sustainable materials and innovative technologies

This book summarized the project Interwoven and its results over the past eight years. The book with a conceptual design addresses biotechnology and research, in addition to the final results and artworks.

The invited authors highlight  the various sides of the project from their fields of expertise. The design of the publication is made by Mainstudio (Edwin van Gelder, Moritz Eggmann), with texts by Giovanni Aloi, Colin Huizing, Judith Elisabeth Weiss & Hertbert Kopp-Oberstebrink, Philip Fimmano, Jiwei Zhou, and Norbert Peeters.
