Azuma has been acclaimed to surprise his fans with his experiential creations using plants in various forms.At the heart of his style is the belief that unveiling the mystic beauty that only nature beholds and transforming it into art brings more value to plants and blossoms, and is his mission as a botanist and artist.
IKEBANA is a Japanese art of flower arrangement, a disciplined art form allowing the use of only living plants; a traditional culture that embraces the whole of nature.
We set out on an unprecedented endeavor to explore beyond our most cherished tradition of 600 years.
A 50 year-old bonsai tree and a bouquet of 30 different forms of life were launched 30,000m high into the space on a specialized vessel; a flight to breathe new life into a traditional art form.
Super-high resolution cameras equipped on the vessels captured an image every second, creating 12,000 art pieces of the flight.
This is the only the beginning of our endeavor to go beyond the horizon of IKEBANA art.
