The floral installation of flowers in blocks of ice was created by botanist and artist Makoto Azuma, two hours from Tokyo. And although it was in 2015, nothing prevents us from following his example (if, of course, the frost hits).
Makoto Azuma in a factory building on a concrete floor exhibited 16 identical ice blocks with frozen flower compositions in it, building them in three columns. To some, this installation reminded of the ancient English Stonehenge, while others saw in them a hint of an ice age.
With purely Japanese meticulousness, Makoto watched the plants for many years, reflecting on their life and death, which, you see, few people think about when buying a bouquet. He experimented a lot: he hung plants in the air on wires, filled bottles with flower petals, and even sent bouquets into space. He believes that in such different conditions, "flowers will show their unique sides, which they do not reflect in everyday life."
Exotic bouquets frozen in time continue this philosophy of the author. Time seemed to be frozen in the ice. The ice will begin to melt, and the sharp beauty of flowers will return to the merciless cycle of time.
