The seasons change gradually across the installation space. A seasonal year of flowers blossom according to the changing seasons, and the place where they grow gradually moves.
The flowers bud, grow, and blossom before their petals begin to wither and eventually fade away. The cycle of growth and decay repeats itself in perpetuity. If viewers stay still, flowers surrounding them bloom and grow more abundantly than usual. If viewers touch or step on the flowers, they shed their petals, wither, and die all at once.
Neither a prerecorded animation nor on loop, the work is rendered in real time by a computer program. The interaction between the viewer and the installation causes continuous change in the artwork; previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur.
