More Questions Than Answers at Chelsea Flower Show 2008

More Questions than Answers was the first art installation at Chelsea and made headline news.

It is a meditation on our attitude to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It depicts a body, outlined in cut white roses with a scattering of loose red petals, on a shiny black plinth that emerges from a pool covered in bright green duckweed.

It expresses my exasperation with humanity and what it is capable of. When I think about this conundrum, I realise there are far more questions than answers. Look at the effort we expend on health and safety regulations, supposedly to make the world safer, yet we send troops to hostile environments without adequate safety equipment.
