Growing Grass Sculptures

Exhibiting at the Invisible Dog Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, these growing grass sculptures change every time you see them. Made of soil and wheat seeds with a structure from recycled metal, they're the creative work of mixed media artist Mathilde Roussel-Giraudy.

"The natural world, ingested as food becomes a component of human being," Roussel-Giraudy says. "Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it's origin, it's transport, has an impact on us beyond its taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world - of abundance, of famine - and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality."

  • I'd like this on my lawn. And with that, there might be a market, despite the crassness of such an idea.
  • Awesome!
  • I really like them.
