A Life in Flowers
A Life in Flowers is an interactive virtual reality experience and fine art installation powered by the participant’s own voice. The project combines the work of renowned botanical sculptor, Azuma Makoto, with veteran virtual reality creator, Armando Kirwin. In the experience, participants will enter a physical art installation and then be placed into virtual reality. Once inside the virtual environment, they will explore the harmony between flowers and human life during a conversation with Azuma achieved using advanced artificial intelligence technology. As the conversation progresses, a unique bouquet of flowers will form based on each participant’s life.
A Life in Flowers is an installation about multiple lives: Azuma’s life as an artist, the lives of flowers, and the lives we each lead. Our hope is that each participant will come away with a newfound appreciation of life in all of its forms.
