The earliest flowers to bloom in spring
are those who stay at home forever


The earliest flowers to bloom in spring are those who stay at home forever. Is a wall tapestry made of melted plastic flowers that explores the limits between the fake and the real, and the constructed value behind everyday materiality. Considering how plastic flowers are usually used in temporary arrangements, often considered untasteful and  linked to the material landscape of lower societal classes. The piece invites to see this overlooked ornament and its connotations through melting by hand 450 pieces of plastic flowers into a single tapestry piece.
