Flow[er] is an interactive flower that responds to movement. As patrons move closer, the flowers sense their presence and slowly ‘blossom’, opening up to welcome the viewer. The flower is made up entirely of old circuit boards and recycled materials. Old cables are used to attach the petals to a rotational motor, which makes them open and close.

Flow[er] is inspired by the cycles and flow of energy of creation and destruction in cities as compared to the cycles in nature. Our movements and our actions have the ability to create beauty, the question is, what do you think is beautiful?
