Past: Tom Allen at Lulu

Flowers are the lighted landing strips of insect air travel. The Vegas sign advertising sex and nectar to bees, birds. What did Zizek say about tulips, "an open invitation to all insects and bees, 'Come and screw me.'"

And perhaps this crass evolutionary productivity might be why flowers are called "the lowest of the genres," gaming the system with hardwired desire. However what artist has ever been above cheating?

Flowers are 'an experimental-constant through which an artist may perform tortures on a cultural concept of beauty.' Vegas; Zizek again: "I think that flowers should be forbidden to children."
