Colours were extracted from three different flower species: safflowers, gerberas and hibiscuses. Alum crystals were grown in the dyes. In this way the pigments of the flowers were preserved inside of the crystallizing alums. In addition, one flower from each species was bleached.
In the exhibition the bleached, white flowers are shown together with the related, colourful crystals.
The work is inspired by a notion that most of the organisms, both in plant and in animal world, seem to loose their colours in death, as if the life itself would be hidden in the colours.
