ART ON THE BELTLINE: The Atlanta Beltline is a repurposed train corridor, and it hosts temporary art installations, along with performances and other events, which started the summer of 2010. "Burgeoning" was one of the 30 projects selected for inaugural exhibition, before any of the trail was paved.
“Burgeoning” was an installation of hundreds of paper flowers arranged in a large ring to celebrate the Atlanta Beltline. The installation grew and changed color during the months that it was on view, shifting from black and white into full color. The flowers are screenprint on paper, and the various designs are based on flowers, but also on elements from the urban environment, like manhole covers and the rail anchors that were found on site. The paper flowers wilted over time and were replaced by new blooms to mimmick the natural process. Dilling’s project was located on the east side, at the end of Krog Street (behind Kevin Rathbun Steak). The time lapse video was created May-August, 2010. More info at: art.beltline.org
