Light on bouquet (2009)

1 min 2 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Light on Bouquet shows the discarded plastic wrapping for a bouquet of flowers as light flickers along its edge. This scene on the footpath is prosaic—we can hear the sound of traffic humming in the background—but the video encourages a moment of contemplation of this piece of beautiful rubbish.
