SWARM (2022) 360° animation, Fulldome/ VR, 8K, 14:30
Swarming is a behavioral phenomenon to survive,
but more than often, it is a prelude for extinction.
Fly with the flock as they travel from Germany, over the Alps, to the Mediteranean Sea.
Small birds migrating over exhausted and exploited landscapes.
Robins, tits and sparrows do not usually migrate this far, but in a near future, they might.
Swarm offers a bird's eye's view over landscapes of threedimensional photocollages that show a part of Europe after climate change.
Animated in VR: Quill
