The Big Inflatable Red Flower At UWA (Very Friendly Art At The 2012 Perth Festival)

Naturally, as soon as UWA’s Info Services library account Tweets about something exciting on campus… I’m so there. This is Breathing Flower.

As part of the Perth Festival 2012 Choi Jeong Hwa installed this giant red inflatable flower at the reflecting pool. “Renowned for his inventive and spectacular use of mass-produced plastics and synthetics in large scale installations, acclaimed artist Choi Jeong Hwa invites you to celebrate art that exudes abundance, colour and joy while provoking reflections upon social consumption and harmony in life.”

It’s a little too friendly for my liking, but it’s entirely my fault as I got too close as it was exhaling. It does really seem to like being photographed though and blossomed quite happily every time it spotted a camera. Highly recommended!
