Pressed flower art has been around for as far as we can remember. The earliest known use in the creative corner is in the 16th century Japanese works, Oshibana. Flowers bring about a positive sentiment in most of us and the proof is in the multi billion dollar global market.
The beautiful arrangement we bring home, then withers to be then discarded for a new set. There have been many experiments trying to preserve the flowers for as long as possible. Pressed art was one of the most creative ideas that are usually vacumed and framed.
This project is an ongoing work of art that is trying to bring the beauty of dried flowers and frame them as photographs.
