Spring Arrives Early: Flowers by Naked 2020

Just when you’re beginning to long for spring but it’s still shivery and damp and gray outside…Flowers By Naked arrives! The projection-mapping environment group Naked is staging its annual flower-themed extravaganza again for the whole month of February, so hop on over there and get a dose of spring fever.

This year’s theme is “Sakura” so you can expect more than average pinkitude
All-new larger-than-life animations of growing things surround you as you make your way through the exhibition
And this year, there’s a fanciful flowers and fairies animation that will delight young fantasy fans
They seem to be taking a page from TeamLab’s seductive use of mirrors to create infinity environments that multiple the flower mandalas all around, for a much more immersive environment than in previous years
There’s always a section given over to extravagent floral design using the kind of unusual combinations you usually don’t see outside of the Flower Dream Expo, and this year they’re incorporated bonsai trees into the mix
It’s fun to go with friends (or on a date) because the last room is always a bar offering original cocktails and other festive drinks
