It's a very personal project. I'm creating it in memory of my closest one - my grandmother.
She loved growing flowers and had a big garden full of different plants. She cared for them with great love and even spoke to them.
Granny passed away at the very beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. I photographed these flowers the first spring after her death. It's their first bloom without her. Then, using a computer algorithm, I created endless image kaleidoscopes out of the flower photos. I saved this moment as a symbol of eternal life, the infinity of creativity, the infinite continuation of human creation.
This project is not about sadness, it is life-affirming, celebrating the joy of life and the joy of a new birth.
Flowering and wilting - a life cycle that contains the unity of fractal repetition.
I turn to NFT as a symbol of digital infinity and a passage into a new universe, a new form of life.
This series of works consists of fractal images and looped videos. The project is complemented by personal stories and memories for each individual work.
