Roothless was a site specific installation, in a temporary gallery space in brooklyn, in which the audience had a direct effect on the installation by walking over the piece or intracting with it. Observing NYC culture as outsiders the concrete sidewalks caught our attention. Ruthlessly poured slabs of concrete, including pre-occupied breaking patterns to prevent natural processes to cause damage. As time passes and nature transforms the sidewalks, an exchange starts taking place between nature and culture. An interaction between controle and coincidence. As makers the experience of rootlessness in urban life triggered them to create an installation exploring the phenomenon in a more exaggerated manner: Nature as both the destroyer and the destroyed.
