Overview

“Dandelions” is an installation directly inspired by the sophisticated design of dandelions (Taraxacum officinale) occurring in nature. The concept of this work was preceded by a meticulous analysis of the structure of dandelion seedhead, which in a somewhat simplified form was then transposed to the macro scale. As a result, the delicate floral pattern took on a completely new — half futuristic, half fairy tale — context.

Goals

The goal was to create a magnificent landmark that would define the space of the shopping mall in Kirkland
