creative agency intertrend presents the opening of ‘the art of bloom’ — an immersive and interactive experience centered on the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature. created in collaboration with design firm daikoku design institute — based in both tokyo and LA — the work engages the common perception of flowers as symbolic vessels. at times of birth and death, flowers have been a reflection of human emotion and a meditative representation of the transitory nature of life on earth. featuring real flowers, cutting-edge lighting technology, and augmented reality interactions that blend both the physical and digital, ‘the art of bloom’ offers visitors the opportunity to connect with nature in an entirely new way.

‘the art of bloom’ by intertrend and daigo daikoku engages physical interaction by making use of sensor technology to capture visitors’ body temperatures. showers of petals, light, and sound aim to awaken the senses while creating a meditative space in which to more deeply ponder man’s relationship to nature, while also connecting to a deeper state of mind. through the use of white floral bouquets, translucent vellum petals, and vibrant saturated lighting, experience goers traverse the space and engage the senses in unexpected ways.
