“Steel Blossom” is a giant stainless flower growing from agriculture with a base featuring grass to an industrial stem and blossom into present and future as it’s still growing. In the petals you find scenes inspired by history and nowadays activities.
I invite you to “read” the different scenes you recognize in this flower. Through your experiences and interpretations. from facts to fantasies, feel free to make all kind of stories: crazy ones, funny ones and weird ones. Share them and listen to other people’s stories and what comes out from the same images. I believe all these stories combined reinforce our sense of identity and belonging to a community. This is the magic of transmission. Maybe next time you look at the blossom it will already be something else.
