Please come to the launch of SIC Intertrashional #5 ROOT
at ROZENSTRAAT â€“ a rose is a rose is a rose, Amsterdam
6th October 2019 at 6pm
Milena told Bea about roots growing in the earth. She said they find a space that the earth has vacated for them so they can enter into it bit by bit. 3 months later, Bea said to Milena â€śRemember that thing you told me about the roots? Like how the earth moves aside for them, so they can travel through itâ€ť. Milena replied â€śNo, Bea! I didnâ€™t tell you that! What I said is that in the last chapter of The Power of Movement in Plants, Darwin proposes that the tip of a root behaves as if it is a sort of earthworm, providing the root with an intelligence that is able to follow the path of least resistance in the soilâ€ť.
What Milena said and what Bea understood are nearly in the same place – a technical melancholy.
