A STUDY IN IKEBANA | Videography
This is a project about process. About the time it takes to position a stem next to a flower. About the space you leave in between them. It's the stripping back of small leaves and branches so that your eye has a path to follow. And about considering the softness of a plant against the hardness of a block of concrete.
A collaborative project with Cynthia Fan and Meghan Ho-Tong. Music by Ross Dorkin.
