City Flowers - O

The series of works is inspired by different fonts of the letter O.

In the long-term project Growing Care I have been recording since 2005 private green areas within the public space - mainly in Rotterdam and Athens, the two cities where I live and work.
Photographs of flower pots on the pavements of Rotterdam, lengths of string and elastic protecting - with affecting tenderness and simplicity - little islands of green on the pavements of Athens: these are the raw materials of installations in situ.
The prints are then transformed into paper flowers City Flowers through a time-consuming process of design and cutting by hand, finally taking on new and varied shapes in ephemeral installations.
