'flourish' is an installation about queer identity and how it has persevered even against an onslaught of disparagement and suppression from society. Like Moss, queer identity has thrived while being rejected by the mainstream for centuries and with patience has blossomed into the culture it is now. 'Flourish' is also a representation of the way one's identity evolves through the passage of time.
