Frequently Asked Questions:
When do you need the flowers?
Ideally I would like to have the bulk
of the flowers by August 2015. Because of where the installation
is, the flowers need to be flame-proofed, which will take some time.
Can I make flowers with regular yarn?
No: all the flowers must be made from
recycled plastic bags. Flowers made from regular yarn will not
be used on the final installation.
What color should the flowers be?
The flowers can be any color you want!
What do you mean by recycled plastic
The bags used for thread need to be
previously used bags: you can collect from friends and family
but do not take new bags from a store, for example.
Why this challenge? Aren't you making
I am! I have been making flowers along
all of you since January 2015.
I leave outside the U.S., can I
Yes! I would like this project to have
as many different cultures as possible, to show that we can
get along as humans and make beautiful and meaningful work
I cannot attend any of the art clubs,
can I still make flowers?
Yes! I am focusing on going to the
neighborhoods of Bay Ridge and Sunset Park in Brooklyn, but anyone
can send me flowers and participate in the installation.
I am not in the art clubs, where
do I send the flowers?
You can send the flowers to me. Please
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to arrange shipping.
