Artist Ori Gersht has been inspired by a 19th-century painting by Henri Fantin-Latour. He has recreated the ancient painting by taking large-scale photographs of elaborate floral arrangements.

In this relationship between past and present, painting and photograph, Ori Gersht captures the exact moment at which beautiful flowers are violently blown up.

Implications - Explosions are something that people can't help but look at and easily grabs their attention. Using explosions in art as well as advertising is a good way to get people to stop, stare and pay attention. Using explosions in advertising doesn't focus on just one group, but is suitable for all groups of consumers. There is no age limit on excitement of explosions.
