Underwater Efflorescence

About This Project


Underwater Efflorescence is an experimental installation series that explores the concept of evolution and biodiversity. In this experiment, flowers are grown underwater to blossom into the water at an art/science lab in Tokyo. They are exposed to a new environment to gradually adapt and evolve.




Our Earth’s climate and environment have changed throughout history. Many species have become extinct, but those who managed to adapt to the new environment have survived and evolved.




The installation series shows the beauty and the strength of species surviving in a new condition.
