the projection mapping ‘bioluminescent forest‘ was made by artists friedrich van schoor and tarek mawad. the duo spent six weeks in the forest fascinated by the silence and organic occurrences, especially the phenomenon of bioluminescence. by setting up a projector and computer on site, they were able to edit graphics in real time, changing the colors and shapes to fit the specifications. the result was a surreal display that combines technological and biological universes. hidden details of the landscape such as luminescent plants, glowing magical mushrooms, and accentuated animals were personified to highlight the natural beauty of the surroundings.
