Thanks Andy Bonner, for pointing me to the Veer Blog posting about an art installation at this year's Wimbledon tennis tournament. HSBC, in an effort to highlight their partnership with the tennis tournament, hired artists Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey to create walls of photographic grass.
For those who have never heard of it, it's where the artists create photographic images by projecting black and white negatives onto grass seedlings as they grow in a dark room for 12 hours per day for more than a week. Apparently, the grass grows in accordance to its exposure to light, thus the photo “develops” on a living canvas of grass. Very cool, and it definitely opens the mind to all the possibilities:
