personal botanical creations by azuma makoto
Flower artist Azuma Makoto opens a virtual shop dubbed META FLORIST, which specializes in the creation and sale of NFT digital flowers. The project is led by ‘Azuma Makoto Flower Center (AMFC),’ the visual production division of the experimental botanical collective ‘Azuma Makoto, Kaju Kenkyusho (AMKK).’
META FLORIST is an online gift service that issues and sells a limited numbers of NFTs, or ‘digital bouquet.’ These virtual floral arrangements can be sent to loved ones together with a message, or can be enjoyed as a collection for yourself. Even those who are unfamiliar with NFTs — or those who don’t own a crypto currency — are invited to access the digital bouquet as a standard online purchase through a dedicated META FLORIST Wallet App.
