Featured in Brisbane City Council’s 2023 edition of Botanica: Contemporary Art Outside, international artists Noa Haim (Rotterdam) in collaboration with Adriaan de Man (Eindhoven) are reimagining their interactive artwork for a special school holidays activity.
Inspired by water lilies once in abundance in the lagoons surrounding the City Botanic Gardens, Petal Patterns are interactive, modular structures combining geometry and sculpture in a playful way.
In this free activity, we’re inviting you to stack, fold and rearrange geometric sculptures into beautiful new shapes to create your very own Petal Patterns inspired by our exhibition Rearranged: Art of the Flower.
