Constellation of the flesh
Art Direction, 3D Visual Design
Constellation of the flesh is a VR experience inspired by Buryat shamans going into trance.
Constellation: trailer 02
Based on a real event in a sacred place between Mongolia, Siberia and China, where a rare meeting of shamans took place at the end of the summer of 2019.
The project focuses on the choreographic expression of trance in shamanist movements. Can we digitise the dance of the supernatural? Can we transform those trance fragments into a sensory experience? How can the body transcend beyond physical boundaries?
