Dikon’s work considers the parallels between printmaking, botanical research, herbalist histories and permacultural techniques. She uses investigative drawings of plants as the subject matter for woodblock, lithographic and intaglio prints. By experimenting with various paper types and reusing normally discarded print media, she is able to translate still images into paper installations. Because of her research in printmakings mutability, it has become a radical stimulus to explore different avenues and boundaries set around and within the field of botany.
