BOTANICAL SPACE FLIGHTS : Artist Azuma Makoto designs EXOBIOTANICA

Just a few weeks ago, a special team was assembled to realize an unusual mission.  Its ambition was to design and execute botanical space flights in an attempt to release beautiful plant bouquets into the outer space.  Along with the help of the camera and engineer crew, artist Azuma Makoto designed his unique bouquets that would travel upwards and never come back.

 

“Plants on the earth rooted in the soil, under the command of gravity.
Roots, soil and gravity – by giving up the links to life, what kind of “beauty” shall be born?
Within the harsh “nature”, at an attitude of 30,000 meters and minus 50 degrees Celsius,
the plants evolve into EXBIOTA (extraterrestrial life).
A pine tree confronting the ridge line of the Earth.
A bouquet of flowers marching towards the sun hit by the intense wind.
Freed from everything, the plants shall head to the space.”
