Not Seeing Is a Flower

Site-specific window installation employs floriography, a form of cryptographic communication historically used as a means to communicate messages otherwise difficult to speak aloud. The flowers in the composition all have a relationship to countries affected by the travel ban and the dense collage includes images of official national flowers, native plants, ceremonial bouquets and images appropriated from Colonial-era postage stamps.
