MAIZECONOMIC

Concept: Orchard is a subseries from the Maizeconomic series. This set of work was initiated from the deforestation phenomenon in Thailand. The abstract lines and shape are an aerialview of the once forest now replaced with economical plants. Many pieces are byproducts of the process and the visual language experimentation. The string attached to the canvas is representing the ridge that bound the crop.
