The Other Flower Show in the gardens of the Victoria and Albert Museum was commissioned in partnership with Up Projects and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Artists were invited to transform a garden shed into a bespoke installation, offering a creative and conceptual alternative to the traditional flower and garden show.

Nilu Izadi modified her shed and transformed it into a camera obscura, paying homage to the traditional buildings of old by using a table to view the live projections. The passing clouds and swaying trees of the courtyard of the Victoria and Albert Museum were playfully brought in and out of focus mechanically by means of a moving lens on a string.
