Tomoya Matsuura: Withered Plant

“This is a collection of images taken with a Scanning Electron Microscope that depict the cycle of life in nature. 
There lies an even deeper natural world in each and every small plant that we see every day in nature. These plants repeat the cycle of birth and death in perpetuity. Though unseen by the naked eye, this cycle is host to a range of expressions, rich activity, and a sense of motion. The Scanning Electron Microscope used to produce the images has a higher resolution than traditional optical microscopes, showing the structure of plants in extremely fine detail. 

Living things eventually expire. However, this is never a terminus, but rather a stepping point towards a new beginning. This cycle exists in all things and this piece is based on the idea that human beings are but one part of nature.”http://tomoyamatsuura.tumblr.com/withered_plant
