Stareyed Flower

galleryThere are many flowers with very thin leaves in nature, most of them very tiny. I knew I wanted a forest of flowers. Flowers that danced around me. Surrounding me. I wanted to be small inside something big.  I just started to weave leaves, 60 of them. I played with leaves creating shapes. The most simple was the best solution. When colouring the structure of yarns led the eye to the middle of the flower where leaves connect. I built a black hole there, that your eye can drown in.

I connected some of them to motors so they really danced around the room. Others moved around by air. A few just kept their place turning slowly. I could walk among them. Like a roof above me. New perspectives give new shapes. Shadows moving on the wall. Turning. Dancing.
