Studies in Interlacement, Xylem & Phloem

This project was originally made for the World of Threads Festival - Common Thread International Exhibition, De Rerum Natura (On the Nature of Things).​ As a response to the exhibition, I paired up with a pathologist, friend and former student of mine to take a series of magnifications of the vascular bundles of locally sourced and seasonal plant stems. Through this work I am interested in examining the similarities that exist in natural and hand-made structures, relating knotting and interlacement to complex systems in nature.
