This is not a landscape photo. It is a work of art by the Japanese artist, Noriko Ambe, who has created a series focused on mapping the interior emotional landscape. She formed this piece by making cuts in a sketchbook. In her artists statement, Noriko states, "It looks like annual rings of a tree or topographical map or waive, but it isn't. It is absolutely the traces of actions of a person, which is me... So to speak, I have been mapping the mysterious land between physical and emotional geography." I was really inspired looking through her website, especially because I had created a series of drawings with a similar goal for the art show last April.
