Plastic Flowers Don't Die

This series is a commentary on the dissonance created by our attachments in an impermanent world. Humans are averse to change, do not want to grow old, do not want to leave their comfort zones, do not want to die. I too am resilient to changes, but flowers are fleeting and shadows are ephemeral. By photographing, cutting, and arranging these flower shadows in a fixed manner, i.e., laser-cut black acrylic, I aim to constitute permanence on both the flowers that will die and the shadows that will fade.
