Japanese new media artist Macoto Murayama uses the latest computer technologies to create stunning digital botanical illustrations that follow scientific traditions while giving new images to the mechanics and general laws of organic forms. The precision and “correct” depiction of the object meets in his works with the aesthetics and enjoyment of the plant in analysis. Murayama dissects and researches the flowers, makes numerous sketches and photographs of the details studding their structure and then, moving into digital dimension, recreates the plant body with the help of 3D computer graphics software. He applies indications of measurements, names of parts, scales and other descriptive elements with excessive details, creating a “blueprint of nature” where the mechanics and the general laws of nature come to the surface entering a fascinating relationship with its beauty and elegancy.
