About the artwork
Floating Rocks offers a surrealistic scene at high altitude. The video alternates between two worlds: one that takes place during the day and the other at night. This artwork highlights the contrast between a lava and a water-filled landscape.

About the series
“Four digital artworks make up the series Hyper Worlds. These pieces are immersive video experiences taking place in distinctive virtual environments.
The magical and mysterious landscapes are characterised by unusual, brightly coloured plants, huge tree-like mushrooms and levitating rocks. I wanted to offer a distinctive perspective on the enigmatic and sometimes disturbing beauty of the world by creating these liberating dream environments, where the definitions of vegetation and minerals are subtly altered. Each of the enchanting and surreal environments in these artworks offer a dreamlike experience, intended to add to one’s experience of reality.
In so doing, these imaginary ecosystems encourage us to reflect on our personal definition of the beauty of nature, which is closely related to its physical and biological principles.
The soundtrack of the works are composed by Canadian producer La+ch, aka 2manyhits. His collaborations are well known in the art world and have fetched several million dollars at prestigious auction houses such as Christie's, Sotheby's and Phillips.
My works are the result of my imagination and question the ideal landscape in a sometimes magical universe. Each creation offers a different vision of an ideal place.”
