Used dryer sheets, threads, rocks

I created “Bloom” to express my wishes and prayers for world peace, which I believe starts from an understanding between individuals. The rocks represent the current reality of the world where people are separated and in danger of war. The yellow colored threads were used as it is the symbolic color for warmth and peace to me. I collected used dryer sheets from different individuals. As a result of connecting them with yellow threads, the shape of the flowers started to appear. The yellow color forms can be viewed as pollen. Pollen is the substance to make the next generation. I pray for world peace from generation to generation. (This piece was started for a group exhibition in Tokyo with the theme of “peace”, which commemorated Japan’s 70th anniversary after WWII ended. )
