mimosa touch me not

Mimosa pudica, a sensitive plant, has leaves widely open to its fullness when you look at it
from a distance; the leaves close elegantly one by one like a fan when a single mindless touch
breaks into its proximity. An artist, with their sensitivity and compassion, is activated by the exterior world environment. It is the source from which our imaginative mind and energy grow. Through the artistic interpretation, it brings the world, the society, us, joy as well as reflection. 

Just as the mimosa leaves, the artisticity would only bloom by keeping a mindful distance from the sometimes-pressing collective society.
