The colors of fall foliage are often so vibrant that they’re the perfect palette for creating works of art. In Japan, many people are using the leaves for just this purpose. They gather the abundance of bold reds, yellows, and oranges, separate them by hue, and then arrange them into compositions that live among nature. Known as ochiba art or fallen leaf art, this trend reimagines the environment in a whimsical way. Although they’re visually delightful, the pieces’ existence is fleeting. As soon as the wind blows, an artist’s handiwork is gone with the breeze.
