A glow in the dark forest is a magical and trippy place

My, this is beautiful. Artists Friedrich van Schoor and Tarek Mawad teamed up in this projection map installation to create a ‘bioluminescent forest’. The entire forest glows with light, from the mushrooms to the trees to the leaves to the grounds to the insects. The darkness is transformed into a magical place.

And a very, very trippy one. They explain:

The artists spent six weeks in the forest fascinated by the silence and natural occurrences in nature, especially the phenomenon “bioluminescence”. They personified the forest to accentuate the natural beauty by creating luring luminescent plants and glowing magical mushrooms that speaks volumes to any visitor that enters the minds of the artists through viewing “bioluminescent forest”.
