Arranging

On this day we were introduced to the principles of Ikebana. We began by focusing our attention toward the ruderal green in Hasenheide park and foraged for vines, sticks, flowers or anything else that caught our eye. Satoka Hatayama encouraged us to ‘speak’ to the plants and see if they wish to come with us to be arranged throughout Floating University Berlin as free style urban ikebana.
