During the summer and fall, Otto’s Abode moved the Visiting Landscape Apparatus to different locations in the village, wilderness, and Ranger School, so the artwork could weather in response to and filter the light of a variety of settings in the area. After months of exposure outdoors, the small panel turned a mysterious green/grey color, and was brought into the Otto's Abode General Store for closer observation. The source of the color change has yet to be determined. The large panel was brought in from the forest at the start of hunting season so as not to confuse the hunters.
