The Roots project is structured to engage with the unique installation of a massive, site-specific web of hand-crafted mixed natural fibers sculptural elements. The installation is designed to engage the public with the notions of energy and perception, space and history. Spanning the whole open space of the archive, the installation is an aleatory open-ended structure that evokes the passing of information and the interworking of life. As an interactive, kinetic sculpture,The Roots disrupts our reality and enliven our senses by offering a three-dimensional, immersive, dynamic, and tactile experience reconnecting the mind and body and actively encouraging creative thinking and inspired reflections on the multiple levels of interconnectedness of individuals and networks.
The Roots employs a stunning ensemble of innovative fiber art and sculptural works, many of which were originally developed as social art projects and have subsequently been part of installations, workshops, and performances at the French American International School, San Francisco’s Old Mint, the SF International Arts Festival, and Alonzo King Lines Ballet.
