Description:  Bouquet is an unusual bouquet, portraying not a collection of flowers, but of fully-grown trees, gathered in an intricate arrangement. This large-scale projection upends the traditional notion of a delicate, floral bouquet, reimagining it as a dynamic, looming forest. Although the work is visually alluring, Bouquet continues Steinkamp's approach to creating projections that are slightly disconcerting, forcing the viewer to reconsider their ideas about nature and their relationship to their immediate environment. Bouquet is also currently on view at the American Consulate in Guangzhou, China as part of the U.S. Department of State's Art in Embassies program.
