The Sound of
Withering Flowers


An audiovisual herbarium, with a collection of flowers available year round in the urban environment – the cut flowers.

Using the scanner as a plant press, and recording each flowers sound. Both with the purpose of extending its lifespan.

Exhibited at
Sigtunastiftelsen, 2020.01.18 – 2019.02.04
Svenskt Tenn, 2019.03.22 – 2019.04.14

Printed on frosted paper and with a clear acrylic cover making it transparent when illuminated from below. Creating an illusion of a collection or bouquet of flowers. 

Inspired by ASMR, where recorded sounds of rustling and whispering can be relaxing to some people, and some even use it to help them fall asleep. I recorded each flowers, when touching and moving them.

By scanning the code next to each flower you can listen to its sound.
