Roots & Vines

“A mysterious unexpected form has taken root, its fibrous tendrils clinging to the surface, reaching outward into the landscape.  Inspired by nature’s ability to regenerate, De Pirro developed methods that mimic these plant structures, using an invasive fiber as her medium.  She collected hundreds of post consumer plastic bags from the local communities, cut them into strips; and then painstakingly crocheted individual vines that were woven into this sinuous form.”

'Roots & Vines' is installed & on display through October. Located within the Amazon windows on Harrison between Boren & Terry in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle. Special thanks to Storefronts Seattle & Shunpike!

Pollinate & Bloom

Imagine standing under a field of strangely beautiful flowers each suspended high above the ground under the leaf canopy of a majestic Maple tree surrounded by the linear architecture of the city. These playful flowers will fill the sky with color & light, inviting visitors to look up & interact in a unique experience that combines nature, art & architecture. 
These eco-flowers have been created using hundreds of reclaimed plastic bottles (& caps) rescued from the waste stream then transformed into art!

Located at 106 Ave. NE ( at NE 6th St., along the pedestrian corridor) in Bellevue, WA
