A phantasm is an organism that only exists in our mind. This phantasm by Clay Dorse Odom is a hybrid creature that is difficult to figure out but has a certain familiarity to it at the same time. It can be a flower, a carnivorous plant or a beast. Flowering Phantasm is all of these things. However, it does not relate to anything in specific.
This interactive artwork reacts to sunlight and the presence of visitors. Watch, and see the flower pedals open and make the entire artwork glow, making you realize that we are connected to nature.
