Terrain Work was recently invited to submit a proposal for a private art gallery in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The proposal, Unfolding Blooms, is a collaboration between Terrain Work & Behin Ha and takes one of the simple pleasures in life - the unfolding of a bloom - and turns it into a fully immersive experience.
The artwork is comprised of a grid of three hundred and fifty mirrored spheres that each contain a mix of blooming flowers and cut branches in the manner of the art of Ikebana. The spheres float above the ground at different levels and are organized in rows spaced three feet apart to allow people to occupy a the space among the blooms. Unfolding Blooms creates an immersive experience that occurs through space and time where people can celebrate the simple beauty of a blossom opening. To learn more about unfolding blooms click here.
