It's raining roses, carnations, and baby’s breath. 16,000 freshly-cut flowers were arranged and suspended from the ceiling of 1515 Broadway in Times Square in January 2015, and over the course of three months they will slowly dry and preserve into a more permanent sculptural installation.
Artist Rebecca Louise Law, who frequently works with flowers to create ephemeral structures, grew up in the London countryside, loving nature. Law hopes the floral installation will be a “tranquil space of nature, a buffer from the crazy,” she says in the interview, below.

The work was on view until April 2015 in the Viacom lobby, 1515 Broadway, New York.
