“Temps de Flors is a flower exhibition which takes place each year in the streets, alleys, courtyards, gardens and monuments of the old town of Girona. The aim is to create a dialogue with the splendid stones that make up the rich architectural heritage of the town. Imaginative works to transform large and small spots filling them with colours, scents and beauty.”

-a gift to Girona-
A wooden crate drops from the sky. A gift spills out onto the cobblestones. The city converses with this dynamic motion of the flow; lowering its resolution as it takes the form of the staircase, suspending it in time. This ephemeral narrative was processed through various flow simulation programs to investigate the confrontation between human flows and the dynamic motion of the ‘gift of flowers.’ Thus refining the installation’s interaction with visitors whilst also interfacing fabrication processes with this analysis, optimising material and reducing waste. “Seeds & Flowers” The uncontrollable behaviour of the flow expresses itself through widely scattered localities of LED seeds, developing into flowers sporadically, having no pattern or order in time. The cohabitation of time and behaviour increase the perception of suspended motion, confronting the return of nature’s rights.
