Photographs Made Of Living Grass

Using an image projector to control how much light is cast on a grass-seeded canvas, artists Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey of the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Alberta have developed a process that allows them to grow massive photographs out of living grass.

Each “print” is created by projecting a negative image onto a living wall of grass. The amount of light shining through different parts of the negative and reaching the grass itself determines what parts of the “print” grow and become green, and which parts remain yellow and “undeveloped.”
