Art and Science are inspired by nature. One of the most iconic characteristics of the densest city in the world, Hong Kong, is her abundant natural landscape and hilly topography. The piece borrows HK mountain ranges and translates nature through science into a field of artificial flowers. It is a spectacle of nature interpreted through science by using heat and temperature to create flowers of different colors of metal oxidation. The colors shift and change as the audience circulate and view it at different angles resembling the endless cycle of nature. At night, the entire installation is lit by a layer of glowing pebbles which resembles the hidden lives in nature at night that deserve our attention. Throughout the display period, the artificial flowers would slowly wither upon autumn through rusting due to the exposure to air and water, which is also part of the designed ‘natural’ and ‘scientific’ mechanism.
