Lisa Waud is based in Detroit, Michigan, and a truly inspiring person when it comes to her work with nature. She describes herself as a "botanical installation artist, focused on large-scale, multi-sensory, immersive works incorporating biophilic elements". Her most remarkable installation is the FlowerHouse which - once read about it - seriously intrigues you to get to know more about this artist. Let's walk through the development of this Flower House turned into Flower Farm slash Public Park.
It all started with the FlowerHouse which was created in 2015 by florist Lisa Waud and several collaborators. The brief exhibition with around 2,000 visitors had a mission to bring awe and joy to its 2,000 visitors and translated the love of art that was created by the group of participating florists. The FlowerHouse was the first stage of the sustainability plan for the site, which would eventually be home to a flower farm. Hereby they pursue a passion for sustainability and responsibility to American-grown flower farms.
Flower house was a three-day large-scale botanical installation in a foreclosed, blighted home created by a team of 37 designers and over 100 volunteers.
