500 roses, 5 circles, 5 weeks

 

Miami, 2000.

Five circles created with five hundred red roses in a natural earth depression.  The roses were arranged differently in each circle.  The five circles had the same dimensions. This installation was left for a period of five weeks until the roses deteriorated completely and they became part of the earth. The viewer/participant would walk around the small  paths  in between circles or sit  on the rocks and admire the color contrast of the roses against the brown terrain.

 

It is an exploration into the cycles of life, passage of time, decay and impermanence. Several movies were created documenting the rose’s decay.  A book is being published with the photographic documentation of this project.
