Lessons from life.
Grasses. True grasses, as they are known, have stigmas that are able to catch flying pollen. From a Biomimicry standpoint, using nature’s way of innovation to solve a problem, a replica of these comb shaped stigmas could make for a new type of anti-allergy device.
Works in this exhibition by emerging artist Anastasia Gardyne look at the how ‘man made’ is cracked; things get rusty and become unusable. Then there is the natural world, that has been around for far longer then we have. The natural world has already figured out so much.
“These patterns found so often in nature mean something. They have a purpose. I am just exploring these patterns.”
