Sakura Vista - Inaka



Cherry blossoms signal the arrival of Spring in many parts of the world, transforming parks, neighborhoods and countrysides into fairytale scenes of gentle pink and white flowers that appear as clouds from a distance. The brief presence of these splendid blooms is much celebrated in Japan as an annual event referred to as “Hanami” with picnics, family gatherings, and prolific picture taking among the ephemeral flowers.

The Sakura Vista series captures vignettes imagined by an AI who will never see sakura blooms with its own “eyes” but can still transport us all to the right time and place to enjoy them.
