Brazilian artist André Feliciano has been commissioned by United Photo Industries to create an interactive art installation featuring over 3,000 of his signature fabricated “camera flowers,” with cameras blooming out of 20 varieties of plants including tulips, lilies, sunflowers and myriads. These colorful sculptures will fill a custom built greenhouse.
