Leaf is Leaf is Leaf - No, it is NOT!
Every micro-meter of nature is so astonishing if we care to observe closely. It often makes me revisit my notion of creativity and art. Art of nature is an objective truth which lasts for ever, unlike the art that we create. Our art, being an opinion, thanks to only the limited five senses that we are born with, won't even last a few years of our life time. Something which appeared like a "work of art" does not appear so anymore.

Here is a small crop, if you want to wonder about marvel of the art and engineering in Nature!

There was a certain joy and meditation in finding this leaf, contemplating it and then imaging it ….I think a large print can create that experience for a viewer especially if it is placed in such a way that they see it from a distance and then slowly approach it to see more and more detail changing the scale. Unable to ignore its presence which can easily be overlooked in nature . Thoughts ?

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

My thought is, to present this artwork it has to be installed at the end of a long corridor. Lines drawn at 10 feet, 5 feet, 2 feet and 1 foot distance from the installation. Viewer is advised to stop at every line for a min before proceeding :). That will recreate an experience of discovering this leaf
