Flowering Transition

We purchase flowers knowing they will die — consumption for the sake of beauty, sentiment and ritual. Nature was once the model of perfection but our aesthetics and abilities have surpassed the humble specimen. Highly engineered and mass produced, flowers have lost their scent, locality, and power. They have become commodities. This work, divided into five chapters, explores the reality of flowers today through ephemeral objects that question the current product landscape.
