Time lapse - building the Singing Gardenby Preston Wright, Minnesota Public Radio

This video was shot over 3 days, May 26-28, 2009 as Blooming Saint Paul, festival volunteers. and sound artist Philip Blackburn set up 33,000 flowers, 20 speakers and tile mosaic benches.
The pictures were taken 1 minute apart on 3 separate days. The sound you hear is an excerpt from the vegetable orchestra created by Blackburn with help from 9th-graders from Patrick Henry High School.
The flower design was created under the direction of Mark Granlund and Angie Koebler of St. Paul Parks and Recreation.
The exhibit is active May 29-31.
