Last year, they planned a project called the Ecological Photograph. They used two piece of cotton cloth to cover a plant’s leaf and then squeezed it between two flat stone. In doing this, the picture of the plant was imprinted into the cotton cloth, that was soaked in salt water. After printing this beautiful design, they sewed the cloth into a little sachet.
