ギャラリー中央の花瓶に写真と同じ花と造花が共に微量の枯葉劑と青い水で生けられている。そのため展覧会期間中、本物の花は青みがかりつつ枯れるが、インターネット上で並行して公開されている花ごとの来客数の集計結果により、毎日一本だけ花が助け出される。本物の花なのか造られた花なのかは別として。

 

Is this material correct ?
The beauty of reproduction and the human intervention in the reproduction:The theme of original and imitation, life and death and reproduction are expressed using real and artificial flowers, photographs, smell and internet. On the wall photographs of real and artificial flowers are hung. In the center of the wall there are the flowers, which are the subject of the photographs, in a vase with blue-colored water and a small amount of defoliant. During the exhibition the real flowers become blue gradually and die, but each day only one flower is saved.
