Discovering Fossil

Fossil is a multimedia site-specific immersive installation. It was created in an old barn and each of its mediums informs the bigger narrative. The space itself has a dark but meditative atmosphere, and the viewer is surrounded by ancient knowledge and symbolism, in a cult like environment of a past matriarchal society.

Sacred geometry and hieroglyphics, found in ancient lost civilizations and alchemy, along with studies on quantum mechanics and current pictograms, fill the room to allow the observer–who becomes an active participant–to explore and understand the installation in its totality.

Fossil is a multimedia site specific immersive installation. It was created in an old barn and each of its mediums informs the bigger narrative. The space itself has a dark but meditative atmosphere, and the viewer is invited to participate in what feels to be a different dimension, lead by matriarchy.

Geometric symbols and signs of research on alchemy, ancient civilizations and quantum mechanics–that were part of the process–have their own space in the room, and help the observer understand the installation in its totality.
