Giant Flowers - Karen's Proposal

My proposal is to place giant flowers, approx. person height round London for the amusement of people. I was thinking daffodils next spring or poppies in Remembrance week 2009.

I particularly would like the flowers to be made from cornstarch so they are bio-degradeable and we are not just putting rubbish in the street.

I have done a little research on cornstarch and found this article

I think this idea came to me partly because of the Andy Goldsworthy project 'Snowballs in Summer'



I think this project fascinated people because they woke up to all the snowballs in the street on mid-summers day and they were unexpected. And obviously the snowball didn't last that long.

would we make all the flowers similar or can we each make our own design to show our different personnalities?

i think we should have them more or less the same, as in the basic stucture should stay the same, size, shape...maybe we could vary with colours or deco. but the flowers should clearly be recognized as an "ensemble" i think, so there is a proper connection between all of them.
question: DO WE HAVE A FLOWER FOR EACH PERSON? SO 11 ACROSS 11 DIFFERENT PARTS OF LONDON?
