As a person, gaze up to the sky and stand on the ground
In this installation, a floral artist, Yuji Ueno will visualize his concept of Ikebana as a mode of expression. For Ueno, this visualization is an approach to the essential balance of the earth. Earth signifies gravity, while flower growing up toward the sunlight symbolizes a power of life. Also, flower that situates itself between the sky and the earth is a metaphor for human beings who are living in the relationships of immense power. Ueno used 3D print technology to create those flower. Situated in a condition of living, the artificial flower starts to shape its form as a symbol of life.
The ikebana piece produced using a 3D printer is a collaborative work of the Israeli artist Maya Ben David and Yuji Ueno and realised based on Ms. Ben David’s idea. We would like to honour their collaboration.
