Floral Message is a short art video, created and directed by Art Director Raya van der Kroon.
In our society we receive forms of appreciation and emotional communication mostly via digital platforms. Our phone almost became the contemporary bouquet, showing acknowledgement when we get a Tinder match or maintain an Instagram friendship.
The video explores floriography, the cryptologic communication behind flowers, through the question of how we could reclaim the code and language of flowers as a modern form of expression.
I created a conceptual composition based on foley recordings, field recordings and sound design. The sounds chosen were inspired by the themes of love, friendship and career. My task was to develop a sound that inspired discovery as well as energy in relation to the movements of the dancer.
