Artist Coaxes Plant Roots Into Geometric Patterns

Inspired by Charles Darwin's observation that plant roots don't just passively grow down, but actively navigate to seek moisture and nutrients, German-born artist Diana Scherer worked to manipulate plant roots into works of art.

Scherer grew oat and wheat, which fast growing root system, on special templates that mold and train the plants' root system into geometric patterns that look like woven textiles.
