Summary

The Infectious Flowersseries of lightboxes contain photographic images of particularly luscious looking flowers. On first encounter we are struck by their exquisite colours and shapes, formed by nature and enhanced by the technology of the medium. But closer inspection reveals their imperfections. The petals are not perfectly formed – areas are ravaged by, and almost pulsated, with disease. The titles identify not the exact species of flora but the cause of their disfigurement – infection by some nature’s cruellest cancers.
