With a well-established international reputation, Japanese photographer Naruki Oshima's latest work, haptic green, makes nature highly present. He applies a complex technical process to deconstruct an image into more than two hundred elements. The process is like a scan; with the camera fixed at a precise point, the artist methodically shoots a series of images starting from the bottom left corner of the frame, up to the top right-hand side, applying various focuses. After reassembling the shots and erasing its overlaps and distortions, the finalized image offers a view on nature which a human eye could never have. The artist describes the purpose of this series as to experience when you walk into dense green woods, and when your eyes reach out to scarcely recognize its object. Two different perspectives of distances exist here, one a close-up focus to see partial details of the tree, the other a distant focus to see the whole perspective of the tree.
