The German artist Anselm Kiefer seems preoccupied with the dark side of technology and his country's history. The work in the background, Burning Rods, refers to the legend of Osiris, the Cernobyl meltdown and a generally dystopian view (although a German business magazine ranked him among the thousand richest people in the country). You need a precis to find your way through it.

The arrangement in front won first prize in the show. You can hardly call it floral. It's barely organic.
