Choi Jeong Hwa: Breathing Flower at University of Western Australia


Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa brings colour and invention to the Reflection Pond at UWA with his amazing installation Breathing Flower. Commissioned by the Perth International Arts Festival the installation 'breathes' as the petals move slowly upwards towards the centre of the piece and then return to a resting position.  In harmony with the beautiful  surroundings, the gentle movement of the installation is mesmerising and the red both exciting and celebratory. An installation that delights the eye and fascinates with each breath.
