Floral Meaning

Activist artist Ai Weiwei is doing a bloomin' beautiful project that he's recording on Instagram.

Everyday he receives bouquets delivered by people in Beijing and he takes pictures of the flowers and posts them on his social media account.

On aiflowers.org, Ai is encouraging the public to create a virtual flower or flowers in memory of the children who died in the Sichuan earthquake on May 12, 2008.

Called "Respect Life Never Forget", his website has accumulated hundreds of pictures of flowers, mostly real, others are graphic designs. If you're stuck he has a template you can follow too.

Wonder what the end result will look like... in the meantime it's a great excuse for people in Beijing to go visit Ai Weiwei...
