As you know, the main source of imagery in my work is the vine. It is the quintessential example of nature’s ability to reclaim or camouflage a space. Here are a few definitions for vine:
1. Any plant having a long slender stem that trails or creeps on the ground or climbs by winding itself about a support or holding fast with tendrils or claspers.
2. A weak-stemmed plant that derives its support from climbing, twining, or creeping along a surface.
A few Vine-like things:
The Vine Weevil
The Vine Forester, image taken from this fabulous blog!
The Vine Snake, They are so light that they can extend about half their body length without support. This ability helps them travel from branch to branch through the trees.
