This Kinect installation turns normal human beings into freaky flower gods

Le Vent Nous Portera, or The Wind Will Carry Us, is an absolutely wonderful Kinect installation that takes you to a surreal forest with a billion stars in the open sky where you masquerade as a mud-person who casts glowing hydrangeas from your palms. It’s like the moment right before you die after your life flashes before your eyes, without the actual dying part. 

This luminous forest scene of two moonlighting pagan gods was engineered and designed by Alexander Letcius and Bulat Sharipov of the art collective TUNDRA from Saint Petersburg, who seem to specialize in creating surreal audiovisual mind-fucks, like this social experiment that uses strobing lights to induce terror.
