'Cross-Pacific AromaFlora' is an artwork by artist Priscilla Yu as a collaboration with Anh and Chi. It features seven different kinds of flowers and herbs -- Perilla leaves, Vietnamese mint, and Lemongrass that are staples in Vietnamese cuisine, as well as Mai and Lotus flowers that inspire memories of springtime in Asia. The Dogwood flowers and fresh mint leaves reference British Columbia summers, and are connected through shared stems. Together they form a united bouquet sharing our journey to the great Pacific Northwest.
