“Life is death, death is life.“ Flowers live within a moment which is blooming and withering, that is, Vanitas (futility). A flower’s lifetime is similar to the life of a disposable plastic bag. Thin and translucent plastic life, being used and discarded, rotting in about 100 years. It is a time of fast life and states a lapse of time. Plastic stands as an opposing concept to genuineness, representing the fake and the artificial. “There is no absolute good or absolute evil and they are relative.“ Plastic and lace which are not just transparent but also opaque are material displaying the contradiction and the coexistence of two worlds such as life and death, black and white, truth and false, visible and invisible. These materials reflect all of the tangible and reverse sides. “Countless colours exist between achromatic colours which are black and white.“ There are various colours having a chroma. These various types of colours stand for diversity, and also represent different species of creatures.
