ArtistJohn Edmark has put nature's blooms in a spin, quite literally, in his mesmerising and strobe animated 3D printed sculpture series entitled: Blooms.
Romanesco broccoli, sunflowers and pinecones are just a few of nature's natural blooms of almost mathematical symmetry, spun under a strobe light resulting in a stunning effect of rippling spiral patterns captured on camera.

It's easy to forget how incredible nature is, so it's great to be reminded just how special it can be. Take the artichoke example below, where the vegetable has been filmed spinning in such a way as to create the illusion that the leaves are actually moving up or down the surface of the artichoke.
Edmark's sculptures feature in a number of museum collections around the world, and are currently on display at the Exploratorium in San Francisco and the Technorama in Winterthur, Switzerland.
