Korean artist Choe U-Ram's flower sculpture combines technology and nature to form a beautiful synergy in art.

The metallic sculpture is titled 'Una Lumino' and stands at 17 feet tall. The mesmerizing fauna is made of acrylic and stainless steel. 'Una Lumino' operates by an automated system,allowing the flowers to light up and bloom periodically.This sculpture is not just an art piece, but a concept with a story. Choe put the art on display and also provided a fictional folkloric tale of the origin of the piece and its place in society.

The lights illuminate against a blank background and unveil a mystical story and interactive art piece. Every detail is exquisite down to every petal and blossom. Choe associates the modern context of technology and reattaches it to the beauty in nature, allowing each individual to connect to the flower sculpture and the story he has concocted.
