migration (empire) - linear version

24 year Art in Bloom participant

Floral Products Used: dendrobium orchid, calla lily, ranunculus, rose, chrysanthemum, rose, magnolia leaves

White dendrobium orchids represent feathers that the owl has released from the pillows. I immediately thought to use the square box container my late father made years ago, as it is an ideal vessel to evoke a generic motel bed.

Floral Arrangement Inspired by...

sound film installation without dialogue; instrumental music with some vocals; views of landscapes and the exteriors of motels; scenes of various animals inside motel rooms--horse, birds, raccoon, deer, bison, fox, rabbits, beaver, mountain lion; total running time: 24 minutes, 28 seconds Certificate of Authenticity in presentation box (copy in object file) Installation and technical requirements: see Notes
