Album: Soon We'll Be Found Uploader: MarcusJ
During a visit to a female prison in Cuba, Poblet met Betsy Torres, an inmate who was taking part in a workshop to learn how to create plastic flowers. The artist realized that the latter provided a real means for the prisoners to release their creativity and imagination. Based on this experience, she uses hundreds of these flowers to outline a portrait of a woman, which could represent Torres, or anyone in similar circumstances. The flowers were placed within bicycle wheels powered by an engine to make them gyrate, thus causing the image to come back and forth from abstraction.
