The flower is comprised of ten foot tall water-jet cut coroplast pedals and a steel interior framework. The pedals are reinforced with fiberglass tubing to help withstand the turbulent desert winds. The flower was then mounted to a man-lift to navigate the event field, becoming an interactive visual art piece that embodies the vibrance and overall spirit of the carnival.
