Phantoms of Asia begins with Choi Jeong Hwa's (Korea) 24-foot red lotus (Breathing Flower) in Civic Center Plaza, across the street from the museum. With motorized bright red fabric leaves opening and closing, simulating the movement of a live lotus flower, the installation creates a link between the modern world and one of the most important cosmological symbols in Asia.
Details of the installation are still to come.
