The Fragility of Time

LOVE this project.

"Designer Ignacio Canales Aracil created these sculptures by pressing and drying wild flowers. Called The Fragility of Time, the project involves collecting plants from gardens and nurseries then pressing them to form fragile sculptures. 
The flowers are held together without any structure or glue, they stand and stick together as the straw in a hat after being dried and pressed all at once. The roughness of the process which requires lots of physical effort contrast with the delicacy and fragility of the finished sculpture.
Working with flowers trying to preserve their beauty, faces directly the fears that we share in the society about time. Life and dead are confronted in a piece which celebrates beauty, sexuality and time. Fighting with and against nature."
