It was an exiting first day of Fleurop Interflora World Cup competition. All competitors had to do two tasks. Starting of with a surprize item in the morning and in the afternoon the first task the competitors had prepared beforehand. Titled, ‘100% Personal’.
Flowerweb and it team was right there and worked with the organisation to make sure we not only show you the end results but also the story behind the creations and techniques used told by the competitors themselves.
Below you can see the results from competitor Tanus Saab.
On our Fleurop - Interflora event page you can see the floral designs from the other competitors.
All contestants were given a surprise assignment which was called "100% Dianthus". They had 4 hours preperation time and 90 minutes time to actually finish the assigment with flowers.
The main ingredients of this assigment:
All competitors recieved the same metal construction.
All competitors were free to use as many of the provided materials as they want.
The main focus in the overall design should be on Dianthus flowers.
The biggest challenge was to free myself from the pre-definition of the flowers and structure, and be able to achieve the creative freedom, adding my personality to the piece. I am pleased and sure of having accomplished my objective.
Day 1: First competition task: 100% personal
The first World Cup task is all about the personality of the finalists. Free of the compulsion to observe rules or conventions, the individual work pieces should reflect the different facets of their characters.
My design represents me, I devote myself to everything I do.There is a poetry by Fernando Pessoa that I like and would like to share with you:
"To be great, be whole: Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you. Be whole in everything. Put all you are Into the smallest thing you do.
I want to show in my work the polarity that exists in me, my uniqueness and facets, such as simplicity and strength, tranquility and movement.
The preparation took a long time, was a major investment, with intent and intensity. It took me a long time to define the technique because I wanted to use materials from Brazil and Germany, and again show facets, different textures, different ways to express them with flowers.
Freedom is trusting, it is having discipline to achieve a dream. It is taking risks.
