Botech is a term coined by Japanese artist Macoto Murayama. He uses it to describe his beautiful and elaborate digital art, which combines botanical inspiration and technological execution. Cultural organisation Metal invited Macoto to stage an exhibition of his brilliant work at their gallery space, uniquely located on the platform of Edge Hill rail station in Liverpool. Following Macoto’s research residency at London’s Kew Gardens, the resulting work consisted of animated video projections and back-lit digital compositions. We created a visual identity for the show – part of the Liverpool Biennial 2014 – as well as print material, wayfinding and exhibition graphics.
“A simple, beautiful and cool design. Thoughtful materials and sensitive execution.”
