Over 30,000 flowers hang in the atrium of Bikini Berlin thanks to London-based artist Rebecca Louise Law’s latest installation. A selection of carnations, roses, orchids etc. (all hand-cut) will gradually change in smell and colour over the course of the display which runs until May 1st. See more images from Garten below!
Tel-Aviv born and now London-based photographer Ori Gersht electrocutes mirrors, capturing them right at the moment the glass shatters. That the mirrors are reflecting flowers is an added bonus. Not only are the resulting images beautiful, they recall Gersht’s work from a few years ago. Although, in that case, it was the flowers themselves that were blown up. More images from Gersht’s latest project, as well as video from his previous, below!
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!
It took David de los Santos 9 months and 50,000 pictures to compile the following footage (the final video has around 5,000 images). He had to find flowers that would open fairly quickly; the interval between images was anywhere between 1 and 10 minutes. The flowers used include: Lillium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, alstroemeria, peonies and nigella damask.
Watch the video of the flowers blooming below.
