Exploded Flowers

by Qi Wei

‘Flowers are indeed one of the most beautiful and complex structures found in nature, specifically designed to achieve the purpose of reproduction. This is a new series I have embarked on – exploded flowers which are images that show the radial symmetry of flowers, and also individual floral components.

The act of disassembly lays bare the various shapes and textures of the flowers, and what is interesting to me is how much more expanded some flowers can get when they are disassembled – the relative surface area to size of a rose is so much greater compared to a larger flower like the sunflower.’
