Animals—including humans—are often characterized as being distinct from plants by means of our mobility. We can move, yet speak so often about being rooted (or wanting to be); about exploring our roots or breaking away from them. Plant life offers a powerful example of the ways growth and movement, or tropism, actively respond to stimuli—not despite rootedness, but because of it. Gravitropism refers to plants’ responses to gravity: putting roots down into the earth and reaching branches and leaves up and away. Taking the idea of gravitropic reactions as a central theme, two cohorts of Resident Artists present work that variously reaches and pulls.
