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!
