My mother photographs flowers in her garden and sends them as daily digital greetings to family and friends overseas. Her nonverbal online communication is the starting point for the work titled Wishing You Well.
- Si Yi Shen
Wishing You Well is a digital mural capturing the word "blooming" constructed from over 1000 flowers collaged. This work depicts the flower as an elegant concept of beauty, resilience and connectivity, which resonates with many cultures.
Amid a global pandemic, our way of communicating and connecting has shifted significantly. The work addresses this new dynamic of communication in our changing world of digital possibilities.
This artwork is projected on the Turbine Hall Screen at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and will greet visitors returning to the Centre after the lifting of lockdown restrictions.
