Buoyant blooms ­


Three giant lotus flowers float in the water near the artificial islands at Banpo Hangang (Han River) Park, which is adjacent to the southern end of Banpo Bridge across the Han River in Seoul. The inflatable sculptures, titled “Flowers Breathing Together,” were created by famous Korean artist Choi Jeong-hwa. The three flowers are 12 meters (39 feet), 8 meters and 4 meters in diameter, and the petals of each move up and down as if breathing. As part of Seoul City’s public art project, the flowers will be on display until winter and will come back in the spring, according to the city government and the artist. [MOON SO-YOUNG]
