Information 

VTB-Capital Spirit of Cornwall is multi-sensory show garden created for the Chelsea Flower Show. The design is inspired by Barbara Hepworth's sculpture garden in St. Ives and Geyer's composition The Bronze Garden. For the Chelsea Flower Show, Geyer was commissioned to create a reimagining of the composition entitled Sea Garden to incorporate a mezzo-soprano and dancer, to be performed within the garden itself. Over the course of the week, 400,000 people visited the garden and listened to the music and over 2 million watched footage about the garden.
