Macoto Murayama

Красивата серия Flora Inorganic е създадена от Японския художник Macoto Murayama ,след неговото обстойно изследване на фотографии и ботанически илюстрации.Тя предлага нова форма на представяне на растенията, нещо повече от това което сме свикнали да виждаме в ботаническите илюстрации.

Mannequin Death
Jarring and violent yet strangely hypnotizing, the video references the Kantian sublime landscape and the “sex appeal of the inorganic,” which, the Italian philosopher Mario Perniola argues, marks the transition from an organic, bodily sexuality to an inorganic and artificial one.


KANNO So / yang02

For this installation, So Kanno + yang02 composed all kinds of differently sized objects, including a telephone, a traffic cone, a plaster figure, a car, and a plant. Cameras, microphones, monitors and microcomputers are embedded in everyday objects arranged in the exhibition space, and connected to the Internet. Visitors can experience the work by logging in to / riding each object via a web browser. Those objects exist as substitutes of – yet together with – real human beings (the visitors) in the same real environment that is subject to physical laws, rather than operating in a virtual space. Against the backdrop of the age of IoT, where all kinds of things are connected through networks, and artificial intelligence is about to mature, this work observes the new relationships that emerge when inorganic, non-autonomous objects transform into persons that act and perceive the world according to their own intentions.

Iris van Herpen


With ‘Syntopia’, Iris van Herpen explores the new worlds that arise within synthetic biology and the intertwining relationships between the organic and the inorganic. ʻSyntopiaʼ acknowledges the current scientific shift in which biology converges with technology and visualizes the fragility and power within.

inorganic flora
La hermosa serie Flora Inorgánica es creada por el artista japonés Macoto Murayama, el sendero no ha sido explorado a fondo en fotografías e ilustraciones botánicas. Eso ofrece una nueva forma en la presentación de las plantas, no más a partir de la variedad cómica de cerdos y visiones en ilustraciones botánicas.

kirilian photograph

In 1939, the technique came to be known, in the Soviet Union, under the name “Kirlian effect”, in honor of Semyon Davidovich Kirlian, rediscoverer of the same. The method consists of photographing an object with a photographic plate, submitted to high-voltage and high-frequency electric fields, but with low current intensity. The result is the appearance of an aura, or rather, a “luminous halo” around objects, whatever it may be, regardless of whether it is organic or inorganic.


inorganic flora

Die wunderschöne Flora Inorganic-Serie wurde vom japanischen Künstler Macoto Murayama kreiert. Der Weg wurde in Fotografien und botanischen Illustrationen nicht gründlich untersucht. Dies bietet eine neue Form der Präsentation von Pflanzen, nicht mehr aus der komischen Vielfalt von Schweinen und Visionen in botanischen Illustrationen.

The marble sculpture PROMETHEUS DELIVERED – a replica of Prometheus Bound by Nicolas Sébastien Adam (1762) – is slowly decomposed by chemolithoautotrophic bacteria. The acidic process water from the bioreactor KAZBEK penetrates the body of the sculpture via tubes and runs off the surface of the stone. The limestone turns into gypsum while the sculpture slowly dissolves. The biomass of the bacteria is the energy source for human liver cells from which the organic sculpture OCTOPLASMA grows. Inorganic stone turns into organic meat. PROMETHEUS DELIVERED is a play on words, referring to birth in the sense of “delivery”, and to the central importance of the liver in myth.



Macoto Murayama cultivates inorganic flora. First, he chooses the plant and finds the real flower, for example the exquisite Lathyrus odoratus L. Second, he dissects the flower cutting the petal and ovary with scalpel and observes it with magnifying glass. Third, he makes sketches and photographs the parts of dissected flower.

美しいFloraInorganicシリーズは、日本のアーティスト、村山真琴によって作成されました。 トレイルは写真や植物画で徹底的に探求されていません。 これは、植物画のコミカルな種類のブタやビジョンからではなく、植物を提示する新しい方法を提供します。
