Piece description from the artist

Carotenoids are a group of plant pigments (tetra-terpenes) that generate yellow, orange and red colors. Carotenoids, and associated pigments called xanthophylls, represent more than 60 pigments – each with a slightly different color. Carotenoid are energy-expensive for the tree to manufacture. Unlike chlorophylls which are only manufactured or maintained when light is present, carotenoids can be generated in the dark, as shown in those maple leaves in full color at the "Subway" hike at Zion.
