Tulips in a Wan-Li Vase, 1619

oil on wood

Private collection

Five different varieties of organic tulips were filmed continuously over a period of 6 days and left to decay naturally. This footage was edited so the periods of inactivity were speeded up and any real-time movement kept in real time. The finished piece is a 32-minute looped film
