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`

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
