About

Macoto Murayama creates computer generated botanical drawings, bringing an ancient tradition of flower illustration into the digital age. Pre-modern visuality meets here with cutting-edge technology; natural forms intertwine with scientific sharpness and descriptive precision. Murayama starts as a true botanist: he collects a flower, makes a vivisection and observation, draws, and photographs. However, his own flower is born with the help of the 3dsMax software for three-dimensional graphics, while composition and symbolical indications are created with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop applications. The full body of works is called “Inorganic Flora”. It has two major brunches, namely “Botanical Diagrams”, large drawings of a particular flower with the scientific name, parts indications, measurements, scale and other descriptive elements, and “Botech Art”, vivid manifestation of synthesized “Botanical Art” and “Technical Art”, in which organic form discloses its mechanical elements while architectonics of the plant reveal its gentle, lively and even sexual nature. Due to Murayama’s unique approach to New Media Art his work has already attracted broad attention of press and critics: Inorganic Flora was presented in WIRED Magazine as well as corporate video of Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory. Botech Art appeared on the cover of the booklet of United Nations conference dedicated to ecology protection and Digital Technologies. Finally, it was Murayamas works which were used for the brochures of the “Salon Indigo” (Paris) and “Direction by Indigo” (New York), the world’s premier fabric shows, to reflect the atmosphere of the season spring/summer 2012 and illustrate “Architected Transparency” and “Ethereal Structures”, while indicating those possible directions the development of The Image might take in the nearest future.
