The notion of metamorphosis is captured in nature itself - the ebb and flow of growth and decay, dependent on the shift of seasons and sunlight. The heightened moment of full bloom is always sought after and awaited. However, it is but a moment in the journey of growth and transformation.

As the sun sets the iconic fountain at Central Park will be engulfed by 1,000 glittering, small flowers embedded into the gardens, trailing to a giant flower alight in its glory.

The Overbloom seeks to capture the beauty of the full bloom in a celebration of physical scale. 

In a mass of numbers and size, The Overbloom reflects the joy in growth, the pleasure of the journey, and the pause to capture a moment of anticipation and astonishment.
