Miguel Chevalier intervenes at the nightfall by using three virtual and interactive flowerbeds projected on the ground. Each projection measures 46 x 32,80 ft. Flower Power 2017 is a new site-specific virtual garden, it is a lush virtual parterre of flowers made up of varieties of luminescent plants. Miguel has included in the garden some varieties of symbolic flowers in Denmark.

The installation puts the visitors in front of an intriguing vegetal universe, a synthetic natural environment in constant transformation. Visitors are transported into an universe between dreams and reality. These different installations will trigger surprise as they aim to create a new poetic relationship between art and plants, and recreate the conditions of symbiosis between Humankind and this reinvented Nature.
