This painting is inspired by the fundamental principle from theoretical physics that explains how the universe is an emergent system where its emergent parts are unlike any other. This is similar to a snowflake or city, where each part of the whole is unique, but synergistically belongs to its respective system.

Universal Interpretation: This painting invites one to contemplate how a system can be made better because of the synergetic uniqueness of its emergent parts.

Architectural Application: This painting asks: "What if architecture were designed so its elements and features were all unique, so no emergent property within the architectural system was a copy of another?" This question invites exploration into how environments can grow organically.
