By coincidence i started collecting old books with dried flowers in them – One postincunable from 1561, or flowers in a book from 1660 about the history of Frisia, even a catalogue by herman de Vries with a dried flower in the cover. This is ”the” historical Sensation! – Nature bound together with human knowledge – hiding in mankinds memory of a lost generation. Conservation of worlds, fragile.

I did make a drawing about dried flower by mind mining about the idea. I created an VR experience in which the collections of dried flowers are reborn, multiplying around you! And at the end there is the pure Historical Sensation, the real historical books themselves who gave birth to one present mind..
