Kachou Fuugetsu (花鳥風月) which translates to ‘Flower, Bird, Wind, Moon’, is considered one of the most important concepts in Japanese aesthetics and thoughts about beauty and art. In essence, it’s all about, “experience the beauty of nature, and in doing so learn about yourself”. This philosophy was a big inspiration for me. Through ‘Flower, Bird, Wind, Moon,’ I explore the relationship between our physicality and the forms of nature. By immersing myself in nature, observing, and being present in the moment, I rediscovered the beauty, magic, and intelligence of nature, and how we are all interconnected. As children, we look at the world with curiosity and wonder, but as we grow older, we often lose that sense of awe. Through this project, I want to bring the viewer back to that sense of wonder and connection with nature. ‘Flower, Bird, Wind, Moon’ is a work in progress that invites you to rediscover the forgotten beauty of the natural world.
