Flowery art installation in the Flat Iron Building

My walk home the other night took me past a wonderful installation in New York's famous Flatiron Building, giving me my daily dose of inspiration. The building is home to the Prow Art Space, a public art space where work is visible 24 hours a day, in a small dimensional glass triangle. The space is as unique as the art inside it and was recently home to a 3D version of Edward Hopper's Nighthawks.

The current installation called Flora Sutra L=T-V, by artist Serena Gidwani Buschi, couldn't be more different. Dozens of lotus flowers appear to be floating in the air, suspended from string or perched atop glass tubes. The style of each varies, and together creates a wonderful, colorful garden in the urban space.  Here are a few of my pics, and you can read more about the artist and the work here.
