Not Fragile like a Flower,
Fragile like a Bomb 

I was inspired by a quote that was used to describe Frida Kahlo and her work, 'Not Fragile like a Flower, Fragile like a Bomb.' I loved the metaphor however after thinking about this quote I wanted to play around with the quote in a literal sense. I created a bomb like shape from a balloon and papier-mâché, and suspended it with wires with flowers, to resemble a bomb exploding, but instead of horror and destruction, it exploded into flowers. Choosing to play with the idea of fragility.
