The 360° project tells the story of a peaceful environment featuring a rare phenomena where a swarm of butterflies is nurturing itself by eating the nectar of flowers showing the beauty but also the fragility of a complex ecosystem. The video installation is configured to work as an interactive 360° experience where the spectator can view the untouched nature by moving / grabbing / touching the nature by his / her hands (mouse) but offers also the possibility to be screened large scale as a flat video loop on a wall, building or in cinema.
The footage was shot at a beautiful summer day in Val d'Aosta near Mont Blanc / Monte Bianco and our goal was/is to document the beauty of nature and its inhabitants paraphrasing Francisco Goya "The Sleep of Nature (Reason) Produces Monsters". The demons themselves are created through the kaleidoscopic effect and protect the forest against bad vibes and destructive machines by mankind.
