The grown gowns are the outcome of a row of experiments and playful interaction with plants and the observation of their roots with photography or time-lapses. Experiments with pearls, small gears, the positioning of seeds or different mediums lead to different plant responses. The outcome was eventually applied to larger surface-areas in the shape of cutting patterns reminding of fine woven textiles. The exhibits show a subterranean, hidden aesthetic of a natural structures that cannot be copied by humans.
