Line of a Plant, work in progress
Line of a Plant explores the ‘infinite growth’ of plants as unfolded by scientific botanical illustrator Alice Tangerini. It begins by looking at how Alice traces a plant’s structures using ultra-close observation of a plant specimen and joins the process of discovering the newly reproduced ‘plantness’ through pen and ink drawings.
This work is currently underway as part of Heo’s artistic experimentation on multi-sensorial settings that amplify the detection of plants by connecting different senses.
