The picture roots came into existence through the simple idea of just creating something floral that could be brought into 3-dimensional space. After searching for an idea around the subject „roots“ for quite a while, I suddenly had the idea of using RGB values of plant pictures translated into 3-dimensional space and connected through lines to create artificial roots – picture roots.
After exploring the design with a little programm, written in processing (also trying AR in this process), and many floral photos we photographed three orchids from the local botanical garden. Their „picture roots“ were then printed in 90x90cm and displayed together with their small originals. In an accompanying book, the tests were also shown.
