Animals of Flowers, Symbiotic Lives - Layered Ultrasubjective Space
This is an interactive installation consisting of countless translucent figures.
The work starts when the animals of Animals of Flowers Born in the Flower Forest, Symbiotic Lives enter Infinite Transparency. When they leave the space the work ends.
Flowers grow from the bodies of animals. The flowers bud, bloom, scatter and fade away.
When people touch the animals the flowers scatter. Once all of the flowers have scattered the animals disappear.
The work is rendered in real time by a computer program. It is neither a prerecorded animation nor on loop, The interaction between the viewer and the installation causes continuous change in the artwork; previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur.
