Hyacinth Cracks shows a two-week period of a hand-painted silk painting becoming part of the ecosystem of two royal palm trees in the hills of Costa Rica, a country home to almost 5 percent of the world’s living species. In the video documentation, nature slowly takes over the silk painting, a human imprint on nature, as the wind, sun, rain, insects, and lizards react with the painting. During the process, nature shapes the silk painting into new forms as the painting becomes part of nature’s organic visual language. Finally, the documentation of natural processes culminates when a golden silk orb-weaver spider weaves a web just above the painting.
