Plants on the earth rooted in the soil, under the command of gravity.
Roots, soil and gravity – by giving up the links to life, what kind of “beauty” shall be born?
Within the harsh “nature”, at an attitude of 30,000 meters and minus 50 degrees Celsius,
the plants evolve into EXBIOTA (extraterrestrial life).
A pine tree confronting the ridge line of the Earth. A bouquet of flowers marching towards the sun hit by the intense wind.
Freed from everything, the plants shall head to the space.
We are delighted to announce the launch of “GALLERY EXOBIOTANICA”.
At this gallery, you can purchase art prints of the images from the art project “EXOBIOTANICA”, which was held in Black Rock Desert in Nevada, U.S.A. in July 2014.
You can browse and select your favorite from approximately 13,000 pieces of images in total, which captured various expressions of BONSAI and BOUQUET that reached the stratosphere at the altitude of 30,000 meters and minus 50 degrees Celsius.
Your purchased image will have a certificate with serial number, reached height, edition number (1/1) as well as autograph of the artist.
Please enjoy the world of EXOBIOTANICA.
