Projection Migromat is inspired by never-ending change of the landscape and by a dream, where living forests started to move to the eastern lands. People than realized, that they need to go with the forests and jumped onto them like on big animals.
Creatures moving around in any environment leave behind traces of their presence. They consume, multiply, adapt the landscape to their needs, and leave their bodies behind for others to live off. As well as living creatures can migrate, also all landscape part can do so, if they do not have the right conditions in their territory anymore.How can we perceive what will be going on in our environment ? Can a place be changed just by our presence or movement within it?

This work is a mix of video and still picture and it is made of whirling colors in the water, on the paper and real landscapes.
