Tuccimei’s Flower Power is a contemplative installation, one that cannot be understood visually, but must be experienced wit the heart, or as the Little Prince explains: “On ne voit bien qu’avec le coeur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux” (“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye”). If one allows the heart to enter into her enchanted flower garden of the Flower Power, one may perceive that life is beautiful, despite its fragility, and that every life, like every flower, is precious, uniqueand has the whole universe reflected within its being.
