This series explores the transience and ephemerality of things in nature more specifically— the crumble and disappearance of the most beautiful, largest and the oldest living systems on the earth -“The Coral Reef”. Their diversity, and their ambiguous organic forms and their decay bring forth another form with their own qualities and hues. The vulnerability and fragility, the phases of their transformations from being alive (extremely colorful) to being dead (bleached or colorless) are aspects that serve as great inspirational triggers in this body of work.
