Launching Flowers Into Outer Space

When it comes to flower arrangements, Japanese artist Makoto Azuma is quite literally pushing the boundaries out of this world. It all started 20 years ago, when the one-time rock musician took a part-time job at a flower shop. There he began to appreciate the power and beauty of plants. The experience made him think: “if flowers symbolize Earthly beauty, how can I push nature’s boundaries? How can I transport beauty to where it doesn’t currently exist?”

His answer: bring flowers to outer space.

Now, as part of an ongoing experimental artistic series, Azuma and a crew of florists, balloon experts and cameramen are launching carefully selected flower arrangements into the atmosphere.
