The Titan Arum

An ephemeral monument

This 3D animation is Alessandro Holler’s Bachelor Diploma project at Zurich University of the Arts. It captures the Titan Arum’s beauty and complexity, as well and its scientific features as it unfurls. The aim was to communicate on a didactic level by explaining the flower’s features, as well as to explore sensorial qualities such as color, surface textures, and light to create an emotional ambience that contextualizes the plant as something precious and exciting.
