In Chinese Jing Hua means flowers in the mirror, but here it’s an interactive installation with visual treats. A bowl that captures creative images of flowers, as projected from an overhead birdhouse. By moving and tilting the bowl, the image of an archetypical flower changes: its color, form, size and structure may be manipulated directly. Jing Hua was showcased in the botanical garden in Frankfurt during the light festival LUMINALE 2010. Many people interacted with it to create virtual flowers by tilting, shaking, turning, even knocking!
