Behind the Scenes: The Floral Installation of my First Solo Exhibition
As some of you know, I recently created a series of fine art prints named The Rebirth of Flowers.
After having a little break in photography, I decided to study floristry to bring some motivation back. After a few months I started bringing home leftover flowers deemed no longer vase-worthy, I didn't want to waste them just yet. At first it was for decorating my studio, and after awhile I was building a collection of dried flowers everywhere. During this time I was watching Game of Thrones latest season and heard the quote 'What is dead may never die', and that's all it took.
The Rebirth of Flowers collection was born.
Whilst I was still inspired by my floristry studies I wanted something more, something I could include other creatives into (I'm a real team player). I pulled my tutor aside and pitched the idea of a full overgrown flower installation to accompany the art. She loved the idea.
The next day I spoke to the class of around 20 floristry students, we were all buzzing with excitement and started sketching ideas out onto paper and thinking of the logistics.
I recorded the entire process of the floristry installation leading up to the exhibition as I really wanted people to see the effort and hard work florists endure in order to create their beautiful floral art.
A big thank you to all the florists involved as well as M.I.T tutors for their support and motivation throughout this process. Thank you! This was a vision of mine that had come true because of them. Enjoy!
