Flower power

TEENY, tiny flower stick­ers have been pop­ping up around town... from where does this paper gar­den grow? Lo­cal art stu­dent Emma Sirona-Macdon­ald is be­hind the lit­tle paste-ups and says the project be­gan dur­ing an in­stal­la­tion class at Ade­laide Cen­tral School of Arts (where this bloom was spotted). “The re­quire­ment was to make 20 prints and then de­vise an in­stal­la­tion out of them,” says the 32-year-old. “I love flow­ers and though us­ing the tra­di­tion­ally bright ger­bera flower it might brighten up some­one’s day.” She started small but 20 prints bloomed in to some­thing she calls The Great Ade­laide Flower Hunt. Emma places them in grey ur­ban sur­rounds such as Hind­ley St, Mor­phett St, the streets of Prospect and in ran­dom train sta­tions. “I want to see if people will in­ter­act. Will some­one look up from their phone or stop for a mo­ment on a busy city street to smile at a flower?”
