A bouquet of wildflowers going through the process of wilting. The bouquet was bought on Hudson Wildflower farm in upstate NY.
I am interested in the process of aging and fading. As people get older, they acquire scars and wrinkles which speak about a person's character, experiences, and life events. Wrinkles are a kind of diary – plants have them too. This bouquet that I picked on a wildflower farm in upstate New York was beautiful, but as it wilted, it became even more interesting. The color and shape of the flowers became more complex, irregular, more intricate and mature, showing a struggle for life and a longing for light. As the flowers wilted, faces with different expressions began to appear in these forms, and the bouquet itself began to turn into a living being.
