Where have all the flowers gone

flowers and little girlsflowers
60 000 flowering gerberas were installed on the steps leading to the Parliament House in Helsinki, as part III of Kaisa Salmi's environmental art project Eeden (Eden). The building is an ugly monolith. I felt the flowers juxtapose quite surreally with it. In another ten days or so, the flowers will be handed out to members of the public.

Cafe garden in Tamminiementie

chairs like ghosts of ballerinas
an angel sat in one of them
I thought the chairs looked like ghosts of ballerinas. An angel sat in one of them, can you see it?
