Martin Roth makes indoor lawns by growing real grass on aging Persian rugs
is also a part-time landscaper, in a way. Roth creates temporary indoor lawns by growing real grass on worn Persian rugs . His first rug-lawn installation was in 2012, and now his latest live art is on display at the Korean Cultural Center in London. Just like a real lawn of fresh grass, the installation will change over time, starting from tiny sprouts that outline each rug’s pattern, and then growing tall enough to obscure the intricate Persian designs.
