Flowering Transition by Marcin Rusak

Friday, 18 July 2014

For his graduation project, Royal College of Art student Marcin Rusak created an installation exploring flowers, including a vase made of petals and a series of scents comparing the strong smell of flowers from a garden to the weaker scents of those sold at a florist or a supermarket.

The vase explores the idea of perishable objects and adding value. Rather than creating an object that is long-lasting but likely to be thrown away within a matter of years, Rusak has created a vase that will naturally degrade and perish, making its shorter life more special.
