The dreamy plants
The Japanese art style has also been featured in Future Reflections. Inspired by natural elements and forces of nature such as the energy transfer through plants, organic movements, and reflections and refractions of light generated within water, the works have a touch of dreams, fantasies, and plants to them.

Nature and data
Inspired by the late Ruth Asawa, an American modernist artist known primarily for her abstract looped-wire sculptures inspired by natural and organic forms, Hannah Yan, is not just a generative artist but also a data scientist. Her artworks are dynamic, changing over time, and capture the raw vitality of life force and reflect on the serene and delicate meditative nature of interconnectedness.

The Miami Exhibition
Future Reflections was featured during Art Basel Miami, the Gateway Miami, in December 2023.
According to representatives of Shiseido, the collection aligns with the company’s foundational narrative. The brand was launched in 1872 by Arinobu Fukuhara, the Japanese business tycoon and pharmacist and cosmetician, who was the head of Apothecary Shiseidō and Toku Fukuhara.
To this day, the company remains close with the digital art domain.

“We own a museum in Tokyo, and we’ve been supporting multiple emerging talents in Japan and the world over the years. We’ve always fully embraced cutting-edge creativity,” said
Alessio Rossi, Shiseido’s executive vice president for U.S. marketing during it. He added, “In looking at this next generation of esteemed artists working in the generative space, it’s a beautiful continuation of that story. We embrace the future. We don’t fight it, we pilot it, we test it.”
