[_The Art of Bloom_](https://theartofbloom.com/), an interactive and immersive experience combining art, technology, and the senses, opens on July 24th at Edison Theatre in downtown Long Beach, California. The exhibition, centered on the intersection of humanity and nature, was created in partnership with the multicultural creative agency [Intertrend](https://www.intertrend.com/) and Tokyo- and LA-based design firm [Daikoku Design Institute](http://daikoku.ndc.co.jp/).  Art of Bloom, Brandon Shigeta ![Art of Bloom, Brandon Shigeta](https://cdn.prod.website-files.com/62ee0bbe0c783a903ecc0ddb/6472b8cb19eebd895aa0c6cf_Flaunt%2BArt%2Bof%2BBloom%2BJalyn%2BEaton.jpeg) _Art of Bloom,_ [Brandon Shigeta](https://www.brandonshigeta.com/) Flowers are used as a repetitive motif in _The Art of Bloom_ as a signifier of a variety of meanings from birth and death to human emotion and meditation. The exhibition is a representation of our deepest experiences as human beings and a celebration of our most important moments through nature. The installation features a cascade of over 6 million printed petals designed to mimic the aerodynamic structures found in nature. This produces 3 distinctive flows that are in turn placed into a cycling system for the installation. A surrounding signature scent designed by scent expert [Yosh Han](https://www.eaudeyosh.com/) lit the air with a touches of orange and oud while sensor technology tracked movement through body heat creating a ghostly play on color. All the sense play is just the tip of the iceberg for this art experience which will also host a wide range of workshops and experiences throughout the summer. * * * [_The Art of Bloom_](https://theartofbloom.com) will be on display from July 24, 2019 - September 29, 2019 at Edison Theatre.
