    Grass Art

    More exciting than it sounds initially: in short, they control the amount of light the grass gets to create "photographs" using chlorophyll.

    We are exploring the capacity of grass to record complex photographic images through the production of chlorophyll. The equivalent of the tonal range in a black-and-white photograph is produced in the yellow and green shades of living grass. Although these organic "photographs" are exhibited in a fresh state for a short time, excessive light or lack of it eventually corrupts the visibility of the image.

    The way I understand it is they would cover the grass to prevent a certain amount of light to get to it. (I could be wrong.) The article said they noticed one day when they picked up a ladder how it left the pattern a lighter color.

    That's a very good point, SS. I thought perhaps Karole was a scientist on the side.
