See this art NOW. WOW. I love the idea of it. I can’t imagine the thought process that transpired before this came to be, but I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall.

Here is an excerpt from the link:
“Ackroyd and Harvey make ambitious works that juxtapose natural forces of growth and decay with artifice, control and randomness, creating time-based interventions that frequently reflect both scientific and architectural concerns. They are acclaimed for their ground-breaking work with the light sensitivity of seedling grass and its ability to record complex photographic images, creating unique works that articulate the seductions of time and visibility. They have been the recipients of numerous awards including the Wellcome Sci-Art Award, NESTA Pioneer Award and the L’Oreal Grand Prize for the Art & Science of Colour.”
