A graphic design work that was inspired by the Kogane River (Fukuoka prefecture). The Kogane RIver ecosystem is known to be unusual, due to the influence of the ash from Mount Aso. The river has inspired the artist to express its rich flora and fauna: birds, dragonflies, wildflowers, wild grasses and butterflies. This work intends to question our established concept of “organic = kind and fragile”, raising the issue of what it means to survive in the wilderness and what kind of strength is necessary to remain alive. The techniques express this strength through cut-up images, rough texture, crude copy and pasting.
