Ecology II: Float II

If I must make a sharp distinction between computer graphic art and other art, I would have to say that art heretofore has tended to give priority to sensitivity and to be influenced somehow by fashion. While sketches and other time-honored art forms begin and end by depicting the epidermis of the phenomena, in computer graphics the eyes are directed at mechanisms and principles. Through the combination and construction of such logical sequences, phenomena are made to re-emerge.

When wonders of nature - dazzling metamorphoses of living creatures and the beauty of it all - astound us, we are often captured by mysterious inner functions, mechanisms and principles, as well as what we can see. My series of work is to recreate living things and/or nature by quasi-reconstruction of the laws of the natural world, approaching the
observed values as closely as possible. This is to purpose the reasons why materialistic shapes and colors exist in this transcendent sphere, yet the enlargement of these realms of existence will certainly mean the creation of images outside the framework of earth and mankind.
When one's intuition and nature 's scientific order work together, an image will begin to breathe as an art which is totally free, charged with strong drive and mysterious power, yet holding distinctive traces of scientific harmony and order of nature.
