Flower Bouquets Frozen in Blocks of Ice by Makoto Azuma

Over the weekend, a factory two hours North West of Tokyo, in a small town in Saitama, was converted into an art gallery. Botanical artist Azuma Makoto and his team were putting on an installation and, when they were done, 16 large blocks of ice stood, lined in columns of three on the concrete floors of the factory. It was like Stonehenge for the ice age. Within the shimmering blocks of ice were exotic flower bouquets, frozen in time.

“Flowers will show unique expressions that they do not display in everyday life, by placed under such a different environment,” said Azuma.
