“I m a mere flower”

Interactive Flower Generator


Stray Birds 

· English version ·
"WE, the rustling leaves, have a voice that answers the storms, but who are you so silent?"
"I am a mere flower."

· Chinese version ·

The poem from Rabindranath Tagore's Stray Birds is a conversation between two entities in nature, the rustling leaves and a flower. The leaves, being more dynamic and vocal, are questioning the flower's silence, highlighting the diversity of life and the importance of each individual's unique contributions.

The project captures the concept through an interactive flower generator that embodies the diversity and uniqueness of each presence.

*Stray Birds is a collection of three hundred and twenty short poems by Rabindranath Tagore.
