Deep rooted vision, profound and ingrained, the splendour of human or artificial intelligence having the capacity to master and enrich innovative scientific solutions whilst unravelling problematic complexities. In creating these artworks: ‘Measure of Visibility’ and ‘Connectedness’, a mapping of intelligence systems disguised as human, this research strikes a visual analogy to the science and the system matrix of crop roots.

The survival of many crops on earth requires a robust and sustainable advantage against many of the elements that challenge their ecosystem, particularly given the harsh conditions of recent droughts and the potential of disastrous bushfires. The study of plants roots and their tenacity to endure short to long seasonal growing periods is fundamental to the productivity of a successful yield and our future food systems.

‘Measure of Visibility’ and ‘Connectedness’ are focused on damage control, artworks that document the research process requiring the planting of various seed batches grown via a specific technical cast and irrigation system. They represent a disastrous situation when biology takes its own control (fungus gnats) and destruction of the root matrix. Simple experiments with seeds, are in fact, a means to expand knowledge of leading science and technology research whilst communicating this knowledge through art.
