For our last adventure under the Dragone Studio flag, we flew to Xishuangbanna, China, for 2 months where we let the surrounding nature guide us to tell a journey inspired by the culture of the Dai people.
A visual and sensory journey in tribute to the harmony between a people, the Dai, and Nature. The connection between men and fragile beings animated by grace and magic in the heart of a kingdom of vegetal beauties created by water.
The main projection surface was the floor, that we designed the patterns, dry or covered with water, seen at 270°… A challenge, but an extraordinary setting to travel through landscapes and time, and pay homage to Nature and all its marvels.
