This is beautiful! I love how this installation allows for the audience to be completely surrounded by flowers. I think that this creates a unique experience, having the flowers rise to make way for people.
“When a viewer approaches this flower-filled space, the flowers near the viewer rise upward all at once, creating a hemispherical space with the viewer at its center. Although the whole space is filled with flowers, a hemispherical space is constantly being created with the viewer at its center and the viewer is free to move around wherever they want. If viewers get close to one another, the domes link up to form one single space. In this interactive floating flower garden viewers are immersed in flowers and become completely one with the garden itself.”
The flowers are alive and I think this makes a difference because the whole space then becomes a living garden. A new way of experiencing a garden is presented and people can appreciate the beauty of the flowers in a dream-like setting.
New Moon simulates the different phases of the moon by using repurposed lightbulbs and a turnstile. The use of light is very pretty and the imagery of the moon is used aptly. I originally thought that the whole structure is like a huge merry-go-round and the whole frame rotates while the moon stays in place (which would have been awesome), but this is great nonetheless and makes a great instalment both indoors and outdoors.
