Nowness Feature about Ikebana: Rita Ferrando meditates on the Japanese art of flower arranging, and the power of plants as carriers of memories


Ikebana imitiert nicht die Natur sondern erweitert sie. Sehr interessantes kleines Feature über die Philosophie der japanischen Blumensteckerei.

The Japanese art of ikebana captures distinct emotions through forms assembled in flowers – its very name rooted in delivering life to cut stems. With branches outstretched horizontally in sculptural compositions – poised rigid and immune to gravity – the centuries-old tradition animates plants through their symbolism, presenting raw materials, plucked from nature, in ways that defy it.
