Now You Can Experience The Life Of A Redwood

If you ever wanted to experience the life of a tree and explore its being, now you can. Treehugger: Wahoma, a combination of virtual reality, data visualization, and installation art, takes participants on a journey through the nervous system of a 3,500-year-old redwood.

Experience the Life of a Redwood

The exhibition, which was on display at London’s Southbank Centre back in December, was created by London-based interactive creative studio Marshmallow Laser Feast. During its time at the Centre, participants would begin their adventure by entering a small, dark studio space that contained a fabric-covered column in the middle of the room. Once they put on their HTV Vive VR headsets, the column would come alive and became a sequoia redwood tree.

The virtual tree provided visitors with a colorful visualization of the complex networks of a sequoia’s imperceptible micro-ecosystem. When physically interacting with the tree, visitors would transform to become part of the lymphatic system and be carried up to the canopy. They would then shrink to the size of molecules and become the droplets of water that come from the redwood’s highest branches. “We’ve heard the experience isn’t that different from like, doing mushrooms,” says creative director at Marshmallow Laser Feast Ersinhan Ersin.

Marshmallow Laser Feast first began designing Treehugger after they completed In the Eyes of the Animal, a VR experience that allowed participants to explore habitats through the eyes of animals that live there. Both Treehugger and In the Eyes of the Animal provide people the ability to explore the natural world. But while In the Eyes of the Animal required users to operate their VR headsets in an actual forest, Treehugger was a way to provide the experience indoors.

In the future, Marshmallow Laser Feast wants to develop different Treehugger “chapters” that explore the life of different kinds of trees. According to Ersin, their objective is to connect people with the natural world using virtual reality. “When most people look at trees, they don’t necessarily see them as being alive, because they move and grow so much more slowly than we do,” says Ersin. “We’re trying to give people a new perception of trees as creatures just as vibrant and alive as we are.”

Show Her The Money: Why Financing Really Matters for Women Directors

Sponsored Content Provided by Luna Bar

If you’ve watched a movie or TV show, or just been out in the world at all in recent history, you probably know that women are underrepresented in media. The problem usually starts with financing—it’s tougher for women directors to get films financed, and with fewer women directors come fewer complex women characters, fewer women crew members, you get the picture.

LUNA Bar’s been championing women for years and has been tackling this problem for a while now. LUNAFEST, a film festival for, by, and about women,has been running since 2000, amplifying the voices of thousands of women in film. But this year LUNA has had even more impact—by directly addressing the financing issue. In January, LUNA delivered six $10,000 grants to women filmmakers at Sundance. Last week in Austin, LUNA and South by Southwest partnered with Chicken & Egg Pictures, a nonprofit devoted to supporting women nonfiction filmmakers, and Gamechanger Films, which exclusively finances women-directed narrative films, to award two $15,000 artist grants to women filmmakers—one for documentary, one for narrative film.

For Nanfu Wang, who won the documentary grant for her film I Am Another You, the grant will help her continue to make films. Wang grew up in a small, rural village in China. “We didn’t have a lot of resources, and girls were not really encouraged to go to school,” she says. Wang’s dad died when she was 12, which further reduced the family’s finances. “We could only afford for one kid to go to school, which of course was my younger brother.”

Undeterred, Wang educated herself, then applied for a scholarship to Ohio State University’s media studies program and got in. It was there she discovered documentaries. “I had never seen a documentary before coming to the United States,” she says. ” I realized this is what I want to do, it brings together all the things I love: storytelling, social change, visual language, and it can really make an impact.”

She began filming I Am Another You, following Dylan, a young American street kid, with the idea that America must be so much freer than China. “I had a very vague idea of American freedom, especially coming from China and I had been longing for a place that was freer, which is how people fantasize about America,” she says. Dylan provided a different window into both freedom and American society. “To me, now, freedom is more complicated,” she says. “There are many, many problems, in any society. In this film I saw issues with homelessness and mental health and how society deals with that. Also religion, judgment, family problems, there are so many layers. And then especially now, as I was completing the film, the political environment has changed so much. Freedom is not free and it’s not guaranteed, it’s something people have to fight for all the time and you can’t take it for granted. It’s very slippery.”

Ceylan Ozgun Ozcelik, the narrative film winner, also tapped into the current political moment with her film Inflame, a psychological thriller that looks at the impact of fake news and Orwellian control of the media and the populace. For Ozcelik, it’s not just about revealing the dangers of autocracy but also the importance of remembering and learning from history. “The initial idea for Inflame was the story of a woman who starts to remember in a society that is forced to forget the past,” she says.

Ozcelik says this grant not only supports her work financially but also brings validation and exposure. “As a Turkish filmmaker, I have always questioned myself in terms of comprehensibility during the creation process. This award means that Inflame is here and reached a global audience, against all odds,” she says. “For that, I am really grateful to SXSW, Gamechanger and LUNA—they made Inflame visible.”

Now in its 16th year, LUNAFEST continues LUNA’s commitment to empower women and amplify their voices. Follow LUNA on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to see how they champion and support women in film and beyond.

Illustration: Hipstory – World Leaders in Hipster Form

Illustration: Hipstory – World Leaders in Hipster Form

We couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear when we came across the latest illustration work of Amit Shimoni, a young Israeli artist based in Tel Aviv. During his time serving in the military service from 18-21 years of age, Amit started painting abstract art to express his emotions. After his military service, while backpacking in Northern India for a few months, he finally acknowledged that creating art would be his life mission. Enter his latest, most creative work, Hipstory. 

“I wanted HIPSTORY to re-imagine the great leaders of modern history and place them in a different time and culture era- ours. I wanted to created a sort of mirror- a mirror that on the one hand is supposed to make one smile, and on the other to make him think. As I see it, criticism doesn’t always have to be poignant it can simply be a method to arouse discussion and show things under a certain light.”

We hope you enjoy this smile-inducing gallery of clever illustrations as much as we do of our great leaders portrayed as modern-day Hipsters. Also be sure to check out a behind the scenes look at Shimoni’s process for creating his Einstein work here. Shimoni’s work  is available for purchase on his site too. I’ll be ordering my Obama print tomorrow.
