We enter mythology. We found Flora. Ancient Flora. Power of nature. It was beautiful. It was in ancient times.
Perfect representation. What is perfection?
Harmony. Idealization idealized by creative beings.
Identity created. Identity shared. Flora. Now. FLORAGORA.
Harmony faded where the future began. The time has passed.
Deconstruction. Asymmetry. Disproportionality. Representation of an inverted aesthetic. Because it is no longer beautiful and is no longer harmonious.
Deconstruction of an identity while retaining its essence.
Now. Flora. The past in the present is different.
