leigh sachwitz’s installation ‘INSIDEOUT’ invites the viewers to experiment a storm within a greenhouse illuminated by bright projections. presented for the first time in hamburg, the piece has been shown in munich, vienna, and now is traveling from paris to amsterdam. flora&faunavisions is proud to be responsible for the complete process of the art installation, artistic direction as well as for the video design. the sound was created by the award-winning composer, musician, and producer andi toma, who is one of the founding members of the breakthrough electronic music collaboration mouse on mars.

drops of water feel like falling down the walls of the greenhouse




the 360° multimedia installation is composed of an aluminum framework that resembles a greenhouse, with translucent walls, where the rain is projected. the project aims to explore the house as a safe place from nature’s forces. the sound plays a big role as it guides the visitor into an experience where a big storm hits the house, making the participant feel vulnerable and exposed, as it dissipates, bringing the calm and feelings of safety.
