Description: A botanical garden is a collection of plants labeled with their botanical names typically housed within an educational context. Flowering plants are animated inside a cubic framework that utilizes the outer edges of the video as a container. The flowers are blown by an unseen force, which causes the plants to collide with each other and the edges of the frame. With each collision, they break apart into a collection of seeds, twigs, leaves and petals. The animations loop forward and back, transitioning between breaking apart and coming back together.

Part of the Collections:

Stanford Medical Center, Stanford, California, 1.
McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, Texas, 3.
