A Flowering Concert

Long Border
A Flowering Concert has been inspired by a classical music concert, with the border visualising the sound of music.

Key plants have been selected to represent musical instruments. Alliums reflect musical notes with their round flower heads, while ornamental grasses represent string instruments such as violins.

Fumika and Jingyi’s design sees ornamental grasses lead the piece as the main melody, with other plants scattered in the border representing parts of a song that fade and develop throughout a piece. A small structure of a conductor stands watch over the border, directing the whole orchestra.
