DESCRIPTION

Gitai (Gitai means biological mimicry in Japanese) is an art book collection with the theme of "object’s mimicry" by a Japan based designer, Tomoyuki Koseko. By applying the concept of biological mimicry to objects, he visualizes new experimental graphics and archives them as specimens through an annual art book publication. The purpose is to raise new thinking by connecting two different images through visual comparisons.

A series of graphic design practices that overlays maps and tree rings. Recording the process of simulating topographic maps, such as Mt. Fuji, the well-known symbol of Japan, with colored tree ring patterns that everyone is familiar with. The remarkable unexpected similarities between tree rings and maps will be highlighted.
