Arboreal

Rohini Devasher Arboreal (2011) ( a 15-minute-long video and a series of large prints derived from it) click here for the video.
Early in her career Devasher – who trained as a printmaker – was inspired by Goethe’s Urpflanze, or the archetypal plants – as much a poetic as it was a quasi-scientific construct that was acknowledged by Charles Darwin. Initially to explore what Goethe described as ‘the essential form with which, as it were, Nature always plays, and from which she produces her great variety’ and later to study any system that could spontaneously organize itself, Devasher found her niche by adopting a counter-intuitive tool – digital technology – or, more specifically, video feedback. Found at Frieze Magazine .
