The artist distilled colours from the various flowers of a bouquet (chinese delphiniums, alpine delphiniums, eucalypti, safflowers, roses). After this, the very same bouquet was bleached. The distilled colours were preserved as isomalt mixtures in glass bottles and shown next to the bleached bouquet.
