Abstract

The piece “Spring Blossoms” emulates the beauty of organic life and its processes, in both tangible and intangible ways. The interconnectedness of biology is especially emulated within trees- their roots are not usually seen with the human eye as underground, their network is being used to share water, share nutrients, and even to communicate by sending signals to their equivalents— other trees. Cherry blossoms are symbolic of time renewal. In many cultures, watching the petals fall introduces spring and represents the fleeting nature of life. Trees and its symbolism have aged with humanity.
