For this exhibition I made a before and an after drawing. I recorded the growth of a pea, daily for 6 weeks. On the eve of the show, I removed the pea from its container and suspended it. On the wall of the gallery, I made a time-lapse drawing that recorded its subsequent wilt and decay. The before drawing still exists.
