Can you imagine walking into a museum and seeing a canopy made of 150,000 Australian native flowers? What about a suspending display of 8,000 flowers hanging from a gallery ceiling, or 30,000 flowers in a Berlin museum to welcome the spring season? Those things may seem extravagant, but that’s because they really are. Rebecca Louise Law is an installation artist based in East London who develops art exhibits with decaying flowers.
“The complexity of flowers as a material fascinated me,” said Law, in a 2016 interview for CNN Style. “I think because they are ephemeral and a challenge, flowers have kept me on my toes. They’re really difficult to work with.”
