20 inches of pavement. Essay for a florilegium

A florilegium is a compendium of flowers. In the 16th century, royal gardens commissioned artists to illustrate the exotic and beautiful flowers in their palaces as a symbol of their power and wealth.


This work ironizes the idea of an exotic florilegium and offers, instead, an ordinary and vulgar one that is within the reach of any pedestrian who stops to observe the roads. For this florilegium, the flowers growing in a 20 inches section of pavement were studied. We invite you to explore these findings, where what seems trivial or sterile at first glance may surprise us.
