Photography Made Through Grass By Heather Ackroyd And Dan Harvey
This process is similar to film photography, except the ‘film’ is grass. The process is done through photosynthesis.
Up close it may just look like a field of grass, but from far away the living image looks like a verdant version of the original photograph. The portraits can last for months, even years, becoming sharper as they grow, then slowly fading away. By “going green” with their art, Ackroyd & Harvey hope to bring awareness to environmental issues; such as, climate change, renewable energy sources, and deforestation. They have received two “RSA Art For Architecture Awards”, the “Wellcome Sci-Art”, the “NESTA Pioneering Award” and “L’Oreal Art and Science of Colour Grand Prize”. Check out more of the duo’s work, including their contribution to the upcoming Summer Olympics, on their website.
