FLOWER BED . OBJECT

By subverting the scale of flower vase as a vessel, the 5' wide concrete vase takes flowers and plants out of its ordinary domestic context into the realm of landscape. The low and flat vase engages the viewers to lie down the grass and observe flowers and plants from within. By showing plants beyond their domestic scale, we can start to see the fragility of each plant in its singular state in a vast openness.

Designed and fabricated In collaboration with Charlie O'Geen, Flower Bed is part of the Inside/Out show curated by Kin & Company and Asa Pingree
