The original artwork for this scarf is titled “I Can See the Forest for the Trees”. It stems from the photographic exploration of multiple vertical lines found in an everyday environment. The accumulation of lines and pauses between lines produce a dynamic visual rhythm, a kind of music for the eyes. I began these studies by photographing groups of trees in a Japanese forest. Next, I photographed piles of books, of magazines, or of files, to which the collection title refers.
