The sculptures are created using steel or aluminum forms that are wrapped in metal mesh, filled with plantes with flowers, ivies and grasses whose foliage provides texture and color. Interior watering systems and growing medium were added so that the flowers could last all through the summer till the end of the exhibition on September 29.
