Red Lotus, White Tents

Red Lotus White Tents
For the new Phantoms of Asia Exhibition at the Asian Art Museum, artist Choi Jeong Hwa inflated a red synthetic cloth lotus -- entitled 'Breathing Flower' -- that fills with air and appears to open, close, and move with the wind in a remarkably natural way. It's a beautiful temporary addition to Civic Center. You can spot it on the left of this photograph during a street fair a while back, floating peacefully above the crowds.
