"Cone Wall," activated here in an interactive installation exhibit called "Accidentally Perfect," at Ed Video Media Arts Centre, curated by Sophia Zheshui Lin. Pinecones, removed from the wall and soaked in water before being returned to the wall, close and reveal a pixelated drawing, which then gradually disappears as the cones dry and expand back to their naturally acclimatized state. The whole process for each drawing takes a day or two (2010). In this clip, four separate sequential patterns were made and have been repeated to loop five times.
