Florescence (Flowers for Iraq) is a series of installation pieces that examine images from the war in Iraq available on Internet sites. In these works, I have attempted to rescue the horrific images from their de-personalized context and imbue them with a sense of beauty. Creating them out of thousands of small, colorful pieces of paper they become memorials to the brutal realities of horrors of war.
