Triangoli Decrescenti (Ortensia) [Decreasing Triangles (hydrangea)] was created with the lowest environmental impact possible. Fossati used only vegetation picked from around his studio and harnessed renewable energy for the printing process. Hydrangea leaves cut into triangles of varying sizes were arranged atop the canvas and printed with the ecoprint technique, which allows the botanical pigments to permanently transfer onto the canvas. Hence, nearly every element of the work was determined by the natural substances, seasons, and climate.
