Location: Riga city canal near the Latvian National Opera

Those who like to walk along the city canal will be able, once again, to enjoy summer-like feelings. Near the National Opera building, with winter approaching, water lilies and lotus flowers have bloomed.

This object consists of five floating structures in the shape of flowers that look like bright, enchanting islands of light in the surrounding darkness. The light-reflecting paint with which the petals have been coated shine in the projectors’ beams. Thanks to the UV-projector programming, the blossoms shine brightly one moment, faintly the next. This creates the impression that the blossoms seem to open and close, hypnotizing people and making them stop during their daily rush.

The installation “The Life of Blossoms” is the debut of creators Garijs Pisecka and Irina Pisecka and is made possible thanks to the participation of Konkas and Skatuves sistemu serviss in this project.
