A video project I styled flowers for is going to be part of an immersive experience on Canal Street with Wallplay this November. Photographer/Video Artist Ashley G. Garner had the following to say about ÆSTHESIA
“Planting the seeds for the future of digital art and wellness, ÆSTHESIA is a multi-sensory body of work conceptualized by Ashley G. Garner that explores the healing benefits of flowers through sight, sound, scent, taste, and touch.
Six flowers were selected that are heavily used in modern medical practices (Chamomile, Echinacea, Lavender, Marigold, Tiger Lily, Wild Rose). Videos filmed by Garner, in collaboration with floral artist, e p h e m e r a, create setting's for each flower to be in their own "world". Videos are paired with sounds recorded from the actual vibrations of each flower by musician, ALURIA. Scents designed by Smithsonian exhibited olfactory artist, Christopher Brosius, and rock candies with flora extract created by NYC chef, Tessa Liebman, expand upon the wholistic experience of each flower when presented in physical spaces”
