Brushstrokes weave together an ocean’s connection to the natural world and you. Reminiscent of Dr. Adrian Bejan’s Constructal Law, the imagery depicts lifelines resembling tree roots, veins on a petal, lightning, or mammalian circulatory systems, paying homage to organic flow and design evolution in nature. They serve as symbols of interconnectedness among all living systems and celebrate the beauty in patterns.
