Though her design is simple, she made use of quantity to produce an eye captivating installation. I appreciate her work as it is easily understandable. Using solar bulbs enables the flowers to be independently lit up, using only natural energy source – the sun. My favourite part though is the continuation of the message of sustainability.

Advancement in technology has certainly improved life and change our necessary survival skills. People once relied heavily on physical copies of maps, cash, printed information, etc. Today, everything is simply a touch away, on one’s phone. Travelling no longer requires stacks of maps, airplane confirmation, and addresses. With just a single click, we can easily access the information we require. However, is it safe to say that the advancement in technology only brings good? I beg to differ. With everything packed into a single device, we are in fact in a state of increasing vulnerability. Losing our phones will instantly diminish our survival skills, leaving us in a state of confusion. By considering the adverse effect and finding a solution, we will be able to enhance what technology can offer us.
