The Decadent Gardener
& the Age of Futurism
Emma Foster
 
The Futurist Garden
In Medlar Lucan & Durian
Gray’s
 
‘The Decadent Gardener’ (1996) one of 
the decadent writings featured is that of Felice Azari and his ideal
‘Futurist’ garden.
 
Felice Azari is an artist from the art movement of Futurism.
Azari’s
manifesto explores his beliefs towards gardensin relation to Futurism especially considering howhe thinks gardens could be improved and more
“up to date”.
 
 
‘Futurist Flora and Plastic Equivalents ofArtificial Scents’
Felice Azari
From reading
Azari’s
manifesto I have bullet pointed out his feelings in wordingthat I will find easier to remember for my project.
Natural flowers do not match our tastes.
Flowers are boring and unchanged.
Flowers as decorations are commonplace and predictable.
Futurist beliefs are offended by the way flowers look.
Overuse of flowers in film ect. Leads to lacking of power to make interest.
Attraction of flowers opposes modern taste through delicacy of hue andsubtlety of form/colour.
Flowers do not meet our visual senses. These senses have shrunk throughconquest of speed. Flowers are now tiny dots of colour like past objects whichhave become decadent.
Scents of flowers do not have the same effect on us they used to. We needmore violent sensations. Better perfumes are now synthetic ones.
Flowers in the media are nauseating because of overuse. We need new formsbecause of changing styles.
