Imagine a luxurious and colourful garden covering 72.000 square metres in the middle of the desert with 50 million flowers and 250 million plants, all creating a scene from out of a fable. It actually exists and is called the Miracle Garden of Dubai, opened to visitors from November to May. Inaugurated sevens years ago on Valentine’s Day, it is right in the centre of Dubailand, an area inside the city. The spectacle it offers when it is in full bloom is overwhelming, with a myriad of flowers of every colour and variety, arranged in the most fantastical ways imaginable. There are numerous attractions, many of which were conceived for children, such as the Big Teddy Bear, Disney Avenue and the Butterfly Garden. This garden of wonders has made the Guinness Book of World Records on numerous occasions - in 2013, with the largest vertical garden, in 2016 for the largest floral sculpture, the one shaped like a life-size Airbus, and, in 2018 for the largest depiction of Mickey Mouse, a floral structure standing 18 metres high.
Blane De St. Croix is a sculptor who works on the landscape of climate change. In tandem with scientific researchers, and as himself an artist-researcher, he works on site, and develops art in direct response to the land itself.
