Enter the enchanted forest 

Inside the forest there is beauty and secret. This domain of wilderness, carefully avoided by people at night, inspires awe and fear.

Concept

Using moving images, you can create tutelary spirit that will become alive in the common subconscious as a symbolic manifestation of nature’s power.

Tree trunks with eyes, whispering twigs, surprising shapes emerging from entangled greenery – all of them remind us that forests are inhabited not only by animals and plants. Different beings can lead wanderers astray, cure people or rule wild creatures.

These protectors of the forest used to feed on the ancient woodlands – the stronger the trees, the more powerful their guardians.

Panorama depicts imaginative forest that is a collage of other woodland sceneries.

 Forest therapy

Contemporary art is therapeuthic for people living in cities. Outside urban settlements the same role is fulfilled by nature, which inspires awe, reverie, relaxes and soothes.

The visual richness embedded in wildlife increases our sensitivity to aesthetics while inducing deep relaxation and attention, which may nevertheless be easily lost in the sensory overloaded urban environment.

Elements

The exhibition is composed of large scale panorama and huge variety of magnetic elements.  The interactive installation space is filled with scents, forest sounds and adaptable seats in the form of stonelike elements covered with „moss”.

Venue

Project implemented in
