You have to go wholeheartedly into anything in order to achieve anything worth having.

After 90 years of operation, the Massachusetts Mental Health Center was closed down in 2003 to make way for demolition and construction of a new building.

How does one memorialize a building impossibly rich with a history of both hope and sadness, and do it in a way that reflects not only the past but also the future? 

To commemorate and recognise the deep impact the facility had on so many people’s lives, an experiential memorial was commissioned.

'Bloom' is the genius work of artist Anna Schuleit, who along with a team of volunteers created this incredible public art installation featuring nearly 28,000 potted flowers.

From a visitor:

"I walked through Bloom with a close friend of mine who has spent a great deal of time inside similar hospitals. He was close to tears and repeated said he felt the desire to jump into the flowers, sum bold for the freedom and the celebration of his own growth and healing. We recognized that Bloom brought beauty and wonder to what has always been an inherently taboo subject matter.”

This seems to have caught some attention in the last day, but it’s too mesmerizing not to share. Beautiful ballet filmed at 1,000 frames-per-second and played against Radiohead’s Everything In Its Right Place — perfection.
