Floral Installation for Kirilola

Back in August 2009, I did an installation for Kirilola, a singer well known as founding member of the Tokyo prog-rock band eX-Girl and experimental ambient group Akasau. Kirilola visited California from Japan in August this year and performed solo concerts in San Francisco, Mill Valley, and Los Angeles. She invited me to create a floral installation for one of her performances. I decided to work with three large canvasses I covered with black fabric and hung so they had the illusion of floating off the ground. The flowers I used were mums, curly willows, orchids, and anthuriums. With the added addition of Kirilola's video projections the stage ambiance was magical.
