1000 Flowers for the Planet - art installation May 2015


I recently displayed all 1000 Flowers at a local exhibition, using two square columns which sat at the entrance to the show. Many people were amazed at all the flowers, but few stopped and read about the project or understood what all the suggestions were about. It made me feel despondent about the state of the planet and how people are incredibly difficult to engage even in conversation, let alone in action. People told me it was all too hard and they couldn't do more than they were already doing. Sad.
But some people were happy to steal a few flowers from the art installation - check out the blank spots.

People STOLE part of your ART??? OMG! They wouldn't dream of doing that from the National Gallery or State Museum, and I don't imagine there was a sign up saying "PLEASE HELP YOURSELF". Wish you'd caught one of them in the act and asked what they were up to... listen to them try to justify themselves.

Sorry to hear so few could be bothered stopping to read/talk about the project. :(
