Abul Thona Baraka An installation of Sudden Flowers’ photographs and texts toured cities and villages throughout Ethiopia in 2006. My design for this installation was inflluenced by the circular shape of the Ethiopian coffee ceremony. Tens of thousands of people viewed the portable installation. Members of Sudden Flowers accompanied the exhibition in its travels and engaged audience members in dialog inspired by their photographs. We used the ritual of the coffee ceremony because we were interested in how local traditions could provide guides for how to deal with an epidemic.
