TÁJÉK Landart Group was invited to work for the international multicultural site OCTOPUS of the SZIGET Summer Festival in Budapest. In 2006 ‘Recycling’ was the theme – we answered with the temporary intallation of Iron Flowers. We placed 9 welded iron flower in the central square of the multicultural site, made from wrecked automobile elements. The ‘flowers were planted’ into a gravel bed and were connected by a closed pipe system underground. In the pipe network we used a smoke machine to create smoke-puking metal plantation, symbolizing a landscape adapting mobility.
