Beeturia is a donation to Isernia with a temporary ephemeral viewing experience. Buried in a shallow ditch and covered in beet seeds, the work was consumed by elements and animals. As the rain passed over the work, the intensity of the alizarin crimson and magenta bled into the paper,  unifying the the human experience of beeturia, an occurrence in which excrement becomes pink due to over consumption of beets in nature.
