Titled “Garden of Hope”, this installation at Phoenix Marketcity offers an immersive experience combining art & technology for Positivity & Hope.
One of the country’s largest and most sought after lifestyle & luxury destinations Phoenix Marketcity Kurla is ready to reopen as the per directives of the Government. The ‘Garden of Hope’ installation showcases the blooming of flowers denoting life and prosperity after a dark time. The flowers blossoming give out the message of positivity & rebirth.
The installation is a 30 ft tall structure standing on a flower bed made up of reflective mylar. The bed is covered with over 15,000 such flowers. With complex origami shapes of flowers, light, and movement that blend both the physical and digital, this exhibit gives you the opportunity to connect with nature in an elevated environment. The mechanism used in the installation helps to create a pattern of the flowers opening and closing in tandem with each other, keeping the hope alive of welcoming a new day and bringing in fresher perspectives.
The mall has steadily sustained its endeavour to patronize and curate pioneering initiatives within the arts, pushing the envelope and blurring the line between retail and aesthetics. The mall has collaborated with renowned experiential design veteran and art director Aaquib Wani to create a breathtaking exquisite floral sculpture that sent out a powerful message of hope to the world.
