Risalkuru (Recycle) explores flowers created through repetitive patterns of recycled materials — glass and plastic bottles, cans, and paper. When first used, they are a thing of beauty, designed for a specific purpose. However, once used, they lose their luster, and evolve into trash. Reclaiming the beauty of these forms is a rebirth — similar to the annual rebirth of the District, notably marked by the blooming of the cherry blossoms.
