Camera Rosetum

Camera Rosetum is a series of exuberantly graphic floral animations intended for public projection and large-scale mural display. Computer-generated rose blossoms and decorative scrolls slowly bloom and fill the visual field in a baroque procession of efflorescent pattern — a still life in motion, a new twist on the concept of the vanitas.

“I think that nothing is more difficult for a true painter than to paint a rose, since before he can do so, he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted.” — Henri Matisse
