"Going back to the point that Dan and I first met back in 1990, the medium of our work was actually chlorophyll,
working with seedling grass, using seedling grass grown in a clay base, growing vertically over an existing archi-
tectural structure. That was our point of connection. We were talking about processes of growth, processes of change,
processes of transformation. In a way, whenever you are dealing with processes of growth, you have to also embrace
the inevitability of decay or of degradation as well. So we’ve always been interested in these pivotal points".
