Diana Sherer's site
‘In my work I explore the relationship man has with his natural environment and his desire to control nature. For the past few years my fascination has mainly been focused on the dynamics of belowground plant parts. I’ve been captivated by the root system, with its hidden, underground processes; it is considered to be the brain of the plant by plant neurobiologists.

"Our perception of plants probably paints them as passive, slow-growing green things that aren't particularly intelligent -- at least, not like us humans. But recent research is showing how arrogantly anthrocentric that view may be, revealing that plants do indeed sense, learn, remember and react much like how a human might.
