Byte Patterns is composed of five photoluminescent acrylic leaf cuts, modelled after herbivory found in the forest ecosystem. Herbivory is the eating of plant parts by animals, it is a key ecosystem process that reduces biomass and density of plants or plant materials, transfers mass and nutrients to the soil or water column, and affects habitat and resource conditions for other organisms. Herbivory intensity can determine whether or not the ecosystem remains healthy or not. How does one record missing data? Tiny bites from a leaf, entire forests erased?
