GRAFTing

August 26, 2010

We have been initially attempting our more literal “grafting” on the branches of an aurelia imported from Home Depot. Grafting, although an incredibly ancient art, is also an incredibly tricky one, particularly as woody plants take quite some time to heal (months in fact, as we’ve found out after impatiently removing the wax too soon). We are interested in the act of grafting as both a form of hybridization (literally fusing together tissue from two sources) and as a way to fundamentally restructure the growth of a plant (for aesthetic rather than functional use). As a collaborative duo, the very idea of grafting applies not only to our physical manipulation of plants, but to our shared practice as we combine skills, resources and concepts to enhance our collaborative work.

Check back for further experiments and attempts to come in this endeavor…
