One of our upcoming April weddings has a large installation piece, so I’ve been inspired by installation art a lot lately. During my undergrad I made some small-scale installation pieces, and was pleased to make the fabric streamer backdrop for Jessa & Brian’s wedding back in 2011 as my first assignment with The Nouveau Romantics. But I definitely haven’t made anything as amazing as this piece, “Blackfield”, by London-based artist Zadok Ben-David.
“Blackfield” is comprised of 10,000+ hand-painted (!!!) cut steel flowers, peeking out of a thin layer of sand. One side is painted black, while the other side bursts with color. I can only imagine how amazing it would be to witness the transition in person, and to study the detail up close. After seeing the incredible detail in “Blackfield”, our installation piece will be a piece of cake. (Pun absolutely intended.)
