Mother Holle by Projektil

Once upon a time there was a widow who had a daughter and a daughter-in-law. She loved her own daughter much more, even if she was ugly and lazy, and her daughter-in-law was beautiful and diligent. The poor girl always had to work, sat at the fountain next to the street and spun until her fingers bled. Day after day, until one day…

Mirror Eyes by Purplepony

With the aid of the mirrors, the magic forest suddenly appears in an infinite, recurring repetition, opening up a fairytale world which is reflected infinitely. The view through the kaleidoscopes leads everyone into a world in which the reality and the fantastic merge.

The Whispering of the Trees by Lucid

Listen to the alleged silence of the forest. Do you hear the life of the trees? What wisdom do they have for you? Find it out by walking close to the trees, hugging them, and showing them that you mean well with them. Through the contact, the trees begin to whisper and sparkle.

Holographic Windmill by Jan Raphael Knieza

When the mist lures through the magic forest, ArtificialOwl creates a virtual dream world – mystical & hypnotic. In the light, the air currents merge to dancing sculptures, the wind suddenly becomes visible. Standing in the middle of the structure, the viewer is gently embraced, hypnotized and enchanted by the light sculptures.

The Luminous Kite by Simon Broggi and Ursina Wirz

In the winter, a rare kite family is observed regularly in the forests around the Heidsee (lake Heidsee) – so far only in long dark winter nights. To be able to see at night, the kite uses its own charisma. He uses the dynamics of astounding human beings to sail effortlessly through the air.

LED Forest by bildspur

In a cool and rough December night disoriented beings wander through the dark forest. In order to show them the way, light columns illuminate the pale trunks of the forest. In this magical place the beings discover that they can take control of the light themselves. Dive into a dream world of colorful and changing lights.

Portal by Desing&Zauberei – Destefani & Zarn

Luminous windows float in the darkness of the forest and cut seemingly endless corridors into the magic forest. Where do these lead? An infinity that invites you to dream, of indescribable places or parallel worlds, whether at the end of the corridor or elsewhere.

Snow Moirée by Projektil

Mother Holle gets lost in the Moirée-land and gets a wonderful patterned robe! In a visual dance of fine rasters, one can experience mother Holles history quite differently. From fine structures, coarser forms emerge and let the mystical creatures come to life.

Immersio by vivi-anne

This year in the magic forest, the stars will fall to the ground for some time, hitting the forest like meteorites to merge. New constellations emerge on the ground and glow in the night. Suddenly, the stars are close at hand and offer insights into their innermost being. Let yourself drift away …
