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.

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
