Lycorises Reverie is an immersive encounter with the imaginary world of the lycorises. Digitally born yet biologically evolved, Lycorieses is a series of generative artworks created by Xin Liu and Nan Zhao. Combining the visual language of microscopic organisms and flowers, the Lycorises represent the intricacies of life and how it constantly evolves.
Through the use of generative algorithms, the artworks are able to create new, unique floral-like forms constantly. Each different color palette reflects the unique structure of Lycorises specifically evolved in its environments, including the volcano, alien desert, or cyberspace. In these worlds, Lycorises perpetually circulate, evolve, and respond to its ever-changing environment.
Mirroring the dedicated and multifaceted craftsmanship that is poured into the process of creating The Dalmore, Liu’s work highlights continuous evolution and the passage of time.
