Art that Moves - Cherhobyl flower, the thing of your nightmares
Mixed Media Mobile Sculpture
29 x 33 x 33 cm

My sculpture appears to be a cannibalistic plant that devours animals. There is no such life form like this but the subject matter is woven together by traits of different plants to create something new. In the making of this art, I explored the possible ways life can mutate or evolve to become something else, like how plants can adapt to eating insects. My sculpture resembles a Venus flytrap and a watermelon, and has five petals with pyramid structures on them. The petals move when a string is pulled inside the pedestal, which conceals much of the mechanism and is decorated with plastic flowers. The materials used are mainly cardboard held together with hot glue and painted with acrylic paint. The small triangles that make the pyramid structures on the petals are measured then duplicated by tracing to ensure uniformity and a smoother movement. The carnivorous flower is nature themed and appears to be hiding in flowers on a rustic grassland. I could have improved the sculpture by measuring the leaf shaped petals so it's nicer and I could have painted the triangles before glueing them.
