Trees are always attraction to me.
I think this trait originated from my name.
My name is a present given by my father, but also a present from all living things of this universe.
Drawing with computers is based on duplicating and coincidence.
With help of coincidence, duplicating and designing its relations is the charm of Code.
The tree’s growth resembles to Code. Of course, mimicking the beauty of nature is impossible, but we can be enchanted by the tree through other perspective.
Like the subtitle of ARTREE, “The Breathtaking Beauty of Nature Came from the Laws of Chance”, I wanted to represent the suffocating beauty that coincidence brings us.
Without noticing, coincidence is nothing. When a chance branches out adapting with the world, it gains its life. That moment is the most beautiful and stunning time, I learned from this work.
