Attention Span

Art In Bloom 2015-03-08 6

Mine isn't all that great, having grown up with 30 minute television shows and 3 minute pop songs. Now, as an adult, I've got the MacBookiPadiPhone set of distractions, delivering the world to me in tidbit size servings. The only thing I can concentrate on indefinitely is editing a photo. It must involve a different part of my brain.

Not so the woman above, who is completely engaged with this floral piece. Below, some very warm flowers compete with a cool Dan Flavin neon tube. I like Flavin's stuff. It's as much about the space around the tube and what you can do to it as the neon bulb itself.

belle composition florale, et maintenant toute notre vie dans notre portable, surtout ne pas le perdre, on perdrait sa vie ;)

I have seen things similar to that neon tube done in galleries here. It does work.

Pretty cool arrangement with yellow and orange flowers.

That's a wonderful place to have flower arrangements. I like the contrast between the bright flowers and modern art.
