If you were to look towards the nature or any environment, it’s physicality, condition, natural phenomena and matter, and if you were to shift completely away from everything that you know about it, forgetting its physical, biological, chemical properties, it’s reasoning, functioning and purpose, you might be able to discover and see in it something entirely new. Only by being neutral towards the projection, I can perceive the true meaning beyond rational justification and thus to construct in any art form it would be my own nature.
