Abandoned Detroit Duplex Filled with 36,000 Flowers

Waud11

Floral designer Lisa Waud bought an abandoned house in Detroit, Michigan for $250 and, with the help of 3 dozen fellow florists, replaced the garbage that once filled it with 36,000 flowers.

The project took a year to plan but was only on display for three days. Aside from the artistic appeal, the temporary installation was part of a broader desire to raise awareness around issues of sustainability and the repurposing of neglected properties in the area. See more images below!

    Stunning. Love that one of the vegetables in the kitchen (?). Also, she bought a house for 250 bucks! I know it was abandoned and decrepit but as a Sydney-sider that makes me want to vomit in envy. Beautiful project.

    All them flowers no doubt died in a few short days…. How’s that for sustainability?

      Hahaha! That’s a fair point! Although I think it’s supposed to relate more to their long-term plans for the house. At least according to the website:

      “when the october installation weekend has passed, the house that held the exhibition will be responsibly deconstructed and its materials repurposed. the land will be converted into a flower farm and design center on their formerly neglected properties”

      • My Uncle Micah got a new blue Land Rover Range Rover Evoque by work part time using a lap-top…more tips here on my` prof!Ie`

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements, which will be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
