13-ft Flower Bouquet in the Middle of the Ocean

Azuma9

Part of his ongoing project, “In Bloom” (which aims to create giant bouquets of flowers in places where they wouldn’t naturally occur), flower artist Azuma Makoto and his team constructed a 13-foot flower bouquet in the middle of the Hinoba-an Sea in the Philippines.

Made from 10,000 heliconia flowers and 100 banana leaves, the making-of images are almost as beautiful as the final piece. See more images below! You can also check out a short documentary of the project here.

    The Red flowers was a beautiful choice of flowers. It compliments the blue ocean. The photography is is amazing btw. I’d love to see more of this style of art installations in the US as small parks and lakes.
