Hi, To, Mu, Ra, consists of square frames and commas of Japanese sentence. Blank frames are often used as the guide for a character. Every sequence of the frames is assigned the words which are Japanses names of the plants naturalized to Japan. All of them are converted as blank frames and enumerated in vertical writing.

Environment simply means physical surroundings from the plant’s point of views. They spread with human movements but without concerning any boundaries set by human beings. To celebrate their fluidity, I left only the frames of their names.
