"Tool Box Flower Box" is an investigation by Chicago area artists of fantastic tools and fantasy flowers. Artists have created unique metaphorical works of utilitarian objects and plants.
Our program attempts to reach beyond the traditional sphere of reality through imaginary forms. The exhibition tests perceived limitations of the utilitarian object and plant world.
The installation unifies the dialogue of all the artists' experiments through a common matrix and substrate which becomes a unique environmental habitat, akin to the pages from a fantastic machinist's manual/botanical portfolio.
"Tool Box Flower Box" is a metaphor for the urban lifestyle where art, technology and nature co-exist.
