The DIGITAL IKEBANA series is inspired by the ancient aesthetic discipline of the Ikebana floral arrangement. However, my Ikebanas only exist as prints and digital images. The series is comprised of a variety of images taken from online databases of university biology departments from all over the world. They have been repurposed to investigate the relationship between artifice and nature. I'm inspired by the technique of layering digital media and the aspects of appropriation. thus, I'm exploring this idea while embracing the use of contemporary technologies like the internet.
