Flickr forst image trawl produced this mini version, one that we could all grow on our window sill and call ‘art’
To grow your art / mini forest:
Fold a piece of kitchen roll in two, then damp down, cut a 45mm square, sprinkle with cress seeds and press down gently.
Lay on a plate and Leave in a warm light place, and look daily for signs of growth which should happen after about 7 days. (Check that the cotton wool remains damp and add a little water if necessary.)
When nicely grown lift off onto a sheet of dry art paper and photograph, your own instant art!
