Azuma Makoto's Flower Displays Showcase Life and Death Over Time

Azuma Makoto, a Japanese artist, worked to create a series of unique flower displays for his project 'Drop Time' which is meant to be representative of the many stages of decay that the organisms experience overtime.

In order to do this, Azuma Makoto's flower displays will appear at the Mass Gallery in Tokyo for an entire month, where those who visit can find the colorful plants blossoming, wilting and eventually dying. Each of the flower displays appears in a large see-through box so that every part has its transitions made clear.

In addition to showing the life cycle of flowers, Azuma Makoto's exhibit is interesting in that it combines the senses of sight and smell, as those in attendance are subject to variety of changes on both fronts given the stage that the plants are at. Photo Credits: designboom, azumamakoto
