The plants we see every day, they all have their own flaws,
yet they are beautiful, because of their own imperfection.
The objects that are abandoned, scattered on a street,
yet they are precious, because of their own memories.
I feel ironic whenever I witness those perfect, flawless flowers and plant motive patterns printed on a textile.
How many times in real life do I see a leaf without a rotten hole or a stain?
Same emotion evokes when I look at the monuments, glorious architectures, perfectly polished high-end stores.
Why aren’t there a single building where has a memorial for the actual workers and the builders?
Why don’t we have the memorial of ‘Raw’?
