I was four years into art school when I realized I cared about people far more than I cared about art. I was five years into art school when I realized that the gallery art I’ve been trained to produce isn’t an effective way to reach people’s ears, brains, or hearts. At most, it’ll satisfy the eyes. These pressed flowers speak on ideas of temporality, community, and fragility. However, the experience of viewing them is much like the experience with tumbleweeds out west. They are there one moment and gone the next. Those who have prior knowledge about tumbleweeds will appreciate how they are pollinating as they go by and supporting our ecosystem. Those who do not will remember them for a moment and they’re gone the next. Likewise, to the average viewer, gallery/museum presentations of art are a temporal and an ineffective way to share ideas.
