Warping a Blue Dot

This project explores the interaction between us, the planet we live in, and the basic structure of life and the Universe.
And how do we perceive all these things!
A warped state of mind allows us to dive into reality from a multidimensional point of view; after all what we experience is nothing but the shadow of a fourth dimension, which is flat in its three-dimensionality, obviously.
The narration of this video comes from three brilliant minds of our modern civilization: Carl Sagan, Alan Watts and Stephen Hawking. (*)
By re-contextualizing their statements, I’ve created a narrative that hopefully complement and unite disciplines such as science and metaphysics, highlighting their shared ground, aiming to a full experience of our home: a pale blue dot immersed in a quantum-fluctuating-enlightened Universe!

Concept

The mind-mapping phase created the backbone of the project. The three main nodes are the starting point of a journey in which the title of this project find its logic

Moodboards

String Theory meets map projections, evolution is multidimensional! The visual references come from theoretical and applied sciences, and metaphysical art.
