Calendula officinalis is widely embraced as a tea in China; on the other hand, it holds the meaning of solitude in the language of flowers in Japan.
During the exhibition period, 10kg of delicately arranged Calendula officinalis tea leaves awaited their transformation, susceptible to the whims of the wind. As a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of human experiences and emotions, viewers can witness the petals riding the breeze, gradually diminishing in size while spreading throughout the entire space, little by little.
