About the art:
Did you know trees communicate through underground networks of roots and fungus? Visit this woman-made forest of interconnected, neuron-like, steel forms that rise to support bulbs, the leaf canopy. Each bulb is enveloped in found materials and illuminated, like fireflies who express through their flicker. Hear “Whispers in the Grove”.

Inspired by mycorrhiza, trees’ communication and symbiosis through an underground network of roots and mycelium, the artists built steel trees topped by cell-like bulbs made of upcycled material from different cities around the USA. The forest-like structure invites people to wander around or sit beneath it, voice tubes invite people to whisper to each other from different parts of the sculpture, and internal lights react to the approach of the viewer.
 Our budding understanding of the mycorrhiza phenomenon makes humans and plants seem more similar. This network is reminiscent of human neurons, the internet, even our network of roads connecting cities. We all live in symbiosis. Through “Whispers in the Grove” artists Natalia, Kathy and Mirabai seek to peak the public’s interest in science and nature, as well as fostering a sense of interconnectedness of humans and plants, leading to responsible conservation efforts and sustainable practices.
