The artist collected five different flowers in Java, Indonesia. Each flower was photocopied after which its colours were distilled. With the colours thereby achieved, the artist painted sheets of plastic to be shown on top of the related photocopy images.
The project was commissioned by the Finnish Institute in Berlin for a group show Bilder zwischen den Zeilen. New work was posted from Indonesia to the show every fortnight for the duration of the exhibition.
