titled ‘undersurface flowers’, azuma makoto’s latest project is a style of flower compositions that not only document the upper half of the plant, but also the portion of the plant usually hidden below ground. submerged in water, these animated roots provide a visual contrast and striking counterpoint to the perfectly formed blooms above. take a look at the compositions below, and see designboom’s comprehensive archive of azuma makoto’s work here.
