EXBIOTANICA – BOTANICAL SPACE FLIGHT
15 July 2014
Location: Black Rock Desert, Nevada, USA
Botanical artist and floral researcher, Azuma Makoto and photographer Shiinoki Shunsuke are AMKK, and together with their team have just launched “Shiki 1″- two ‘botanical installations’ – a bouquet and bonsai tree, into space from Black Rock Desert in Nevada.
AMKK crosses sculptural and botanical exploration, creating work with the most insightful intelligence and research – it was through their ‘Paludarium Shigelu’ for Broached Commissions where we first came across their work, and were later delighted to feature a full length interview and article on them in CHAMP Issue #7.
