A Breath of Life

This is an expedition involving the artificial study of plant life.
Materials – Flexinol (shape memory alloy), recycled electronic components, specimen jars.
Ten propagated flower lamps from a living plant. Each flower lamp has a ‘death state’, until human interaction triggers its ‘life state’ and just for a brief moment, you may recapture the flowers in full bloom, and just like flowers, each lamp is uniquely formed and retains its own character.
When the viewer blows into the specimen jars, each flower begins a shape change. Blowing is the appropriate interaction as trees and plants grow on carbon dioxide.
Every living thing needs a home, plants change themselves to survive in their habitat.
