A Love Letter to Nature

Zonghan Liu

As a small child, I was deeply fascinated and influenced by the stories and visual aesthetics in many of Hayao Miyazaki’s fantasy films, such as Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. These films fostered my yearning and love for the peacefulness and pureness that could be seen in nature, which also led to how I came up with the idea of this work. In this work, I aim to explore the relationship between human and nature, ask questions about the essence of life that lies within ourselves and the natural environment around us, and show the intimate and harmonious connection that could be created in these natural landscapes. This work highlights nature as a friend and guardian that we can connect with trust and love and not be afraid, also encouraging people to be caring, friendly, and positive while interacting with our natural environment.
