Project description

Alien is the creature created by imagination, abandoning the possibility that humans (living things) exist only on Earth. Then, are plants only on Earth? There are many living things on Earth and all of them live in different shapes. However, if you look at it, it is not out of the big frame. It is a suitable appearance to live on Earth with each creature. Just as we imagine aliens as human-like appearances, perhaps if alien plants exist, they may not be much different from what we know. Because the essence of plants is the same meaning.

The project began with doubts and interest in the existence of extraterrestrial plants. We were inspired by plants on Earth and brought elements to recreate new space plants to match each planet. Using existing life forms to create new non-existent life forms. We freely express imaginary plants and reinterpret various perceptions and thoughts about plants. In the process, we realize the nature of our existence again and experience new experiences about new creatures.
