The flower forms have appeared to me as separated from their stems and roots. Untethered, they resemble a bubble floating by or a ball or planet. There’s a dream quality to them, of being implausible yet familiar and graspable. The lifting, floating idea identifies for me an upward notion to thoughts in an otherwise downward, grounded physical reality.
