Part of the Process

The use of cut flowers within my work is in relation to process and preservation.  These delicate objects that are used in various ways, as markers of events and ritual, to brighten our homes, are literally, dying in front of us.

Thrown out after losing their freshness and appeal, I am investigating ways of prolonging their lifespan, giving them an alternative direction not just in the physical sense but also in their meaning.  The effects their cultivation has on their surrounding and subsequent environments during the process is something that is not necessarily widely known or considered by the consumer.
