Tag: Iced Flowers

Azuma Makoto's "Iced Flowers" was an ephemeral sculpture series that captured stunning bouquets in pristine blocks of ice. Makoto frequently works with floral arrangements to create surreal and sculptural installations. This latest series was a time-based piece that looked different at every stage of the ice's inevitable transformation back to liquid. On January 10 and 11, Makoto presented the "Iced Flowers" installation at a venue in Saitama, Japan, inviting viewers to watch the flowers melt to an original soundtrack composed by Toru Matsumoto. Check out a photo series capturing "Iced Flowers" below.
