The 7th BIOART CONTEST, 2019
Topic: The Beauty of Life
Have you heard the term “Desierto Florido” ? Chile’s “Atacamac” desert, which is 50 times drier than California’s Death Valley in the U.S. It’s the phenomenon of over 200 flowers blooming when torrential rains sweep through a desert where nothing seems to be alive.
The strength of the nameless seeds that have endured over the years in a harsh environment where no living creature would ever exist makes us all amazed. But this great and vibrant nature is being collapsed by the human race. Life on Earth which existed for the last hundreds of years is going extinct due to the environmental pollution, reckless development, poaching, and so on. Soon, our descendants will throw back the beauty of fireflies only through the books. What about our society? Lookism and life-depreciation are rampant in the society and are becoming serious social problems. It’s because people only focus on the external appearance, rather than look into the beauty of life itself.
A weed that survives the cold winter in a small crack of asphalt road, a brain-dead patient who gives new life through organ donation, and a blind artist who draws hope with a touch of his hand. Finding and sharing the fundamental beauty of life will be the first step in creating a culture of life, which is being forgotten in our society. We really want to share the beauty of life with people around the world that has been hidden and has not been recognized for a long time.
