The essence and value of the "Performative Drawings" is to validate the fading and staining evolution and performative quality of the plant in and on the paper, which is evidence of their aliveness, chemistry and biology interacting with micro-organisms and elements in the air, and as evidence of the value of the method of direct application of living plants on paper.
