‘Future Flowers’ blossom at an ancient Japanese shrine

When thinking of Japan in spring, you’ll no doubt picture the annual cherry blossom celebrations taking place around this time of year. That custom, known as Hanami, goes back thousands of years and originally centered around plum, not cherry, blossoms. With that in the background, Danish floral designer Nicolai Bergmann presented Hanami 2050, a digitally-enhanced flower exhibition at the historic Fukuoka / Dazaifu Tenmangu Shinto shrine.

Bergmann created Hanami 2050 to coincide with the festival, while using the blossoms and their pink colors as a strong theme. He made digital loops called “Future Flowers” in collaboration with Japanese design firm OneSal. They are displayed on screens integrated into the physical foliage on display. Buds emerge from the main flower, then sprout new flowers fractally like organic, extraterrestrial fireworks.
