When you step back to look at these photos, what do you see? To ring in the new year, Berlin-based multi-disciplinary artist Sarah Illenberger took beautiful flower bouquets and arranged them into explosive displays for “Flowerworks,” a series captured by photographer Sabrina Rynas. And they really look like a vibrant display of celebratory fireworks, don’t they?
The botanical buds come to life thanks to the collaboration of Illenberger and Rynas. Each artfully arranged piece of work showcases colorful petals exploding in a dark night sky. The burst of colors against the pitch blackness is both playful and tasteful, and truly mimics the festive displays we’ve grown accustomed to for holiday celebrations. Who knew flowers could make such a boom? The effect is really quite uncanny!

Illenberger works with a variety of mediums with art, graphic design, and photography. She focuses on everyday items to create vivid, often witty images that provide a fresh take on the familiar subjects. Through ‘Flowerworks,’ she has certainly transformed an ordinary object of flowers into an unexpected and welcome visual experience as they burst in mid-air. She has collaborated with a number of photographers and artists and exhibited work exploring the overlap between art and design in Paris, Tokyo, and Berlin. You can view more of her work for some of the world’s top brands and magazines in her portfolio. Fine art prints from this series are available in her shop.
