I prepared a lecture on art and technology for my students.I researched and found interesting data, which I did not know.The modern age has introduced innovations in the field of art, with the development of technology.Digital art uses modern technology, it is a virtual world, a virtual reality that enables a complete experience that is not possible in a real environment.Such works are most often performed as a display of an image in all directions, where light and sound effects complete the audience's experience.One example is the House of Arts in Washington, D.C., where contemporary artists exhibit their work by connecting art, science and technology.

The installation is especially beautiful and interesting; "Cherry Blossom".

And it was this installation that led me to learn as much as possible about the cherry blossom and to pass that knowledge on to my students.I didn’t know much and I was fascinated.In Japan, in the spring, at the end of March and the month of April, the cherry blossom blooms.This amazing sight attracts thousands of visitors. Usually they sit, have lunch, read or walk under a tree.Japanese cherry day is also celebrated in America. Canada, England, Turkey.Back in 1912, the mayor of Tokyo donated 3,000 trees to Washington, which is why a 2-week festival is held every year.The fruit of the cherry is small and tasteless, but that is why the flower is interesting. First, it is salted, dried and added as a spice. Japanese cakes in which the cherry blossom is placed are especially interesting.

The cherries in Washington resisted all the temptations of US-Japanese relations: Pearl Harbor (in protest, someone cut down four trees on December 11, 1941, and for a time the cherries were called "oriental" instead of Japanese) and the horrific atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The hostility, however, proved to be only temporary: America and Japan are today both friends and allies. That is why the Americans enjoyed "sakura" as much these days as the Japanese, but with one difference in detail: while in Tokyo, under the cherries, considerable amounts of sake and beer are consumed, in Washington, alcohol is banned as doping for good luck under flowering branches.And according to what we saw, sharing that happiness with Americans of all races and colors for a few hours, it could be said that the gift from 1912 was in fact a marketing campaign of future Japanese camera manufacturers: (digital) camera made in Japan.

My students were satisfied with the lecture. Of course, I can't miss my city in Serbia and the street where I grew up. These trees have been blooming for decades.
