When Faces Called Flowers

Material Design

“When faces called flowers float out of the ground” is the first line of a famous poem by E.E. Cummings. It’s a surreal and playful concept apt for translation from the written word to a visual format. So, one summery Saturday morning we raided the local florist and started designing a flower arrangement like makeup on a face. The result was a stunning artwork that faded and wilted only a few days after coming into existence.

One of the images of the mask was used as the book cover for Thought Catalog writer Bianca Sparacino’s debut poetry collection Seeds Planted In Concrete.
