Evolving Roots

Abstract:
“Evolving Roots” refers to the production of coffee seeds in Brazil as a cultural reference. On one hand, it emphasizes the significance of coffee production in Brazil as the world’s largest producer of coffee for the last 150 years and Sao Paulo as the 3rd largest producer state in Brazil. On the other hand, it captures this natural form in a digital imagery. By creating such contrast, Basaran aims to reflect the dynamism between the nature and technology in today’s world. And raises the debate on how human stays connected to their environment, how nature itself is still conserved in the face of the speedy change towards mechanical interfaces and mediums.
