This is a prototype for an animated wallpaper installation as part of Natasha's ongoing 'Captivate Project' in collaboration with Joanie Lemercier.
The piece is inspired by Natasha's favourite Grimm’s fairy tale, ‘The shoes that were danced into holes’ which tells the tale of twelve sisters who descend each night to the underworld, to dance amongst avenues of trees with silver, gold and diamond leaves.
Designed as a full four-way repeat and intended for a large scale setting, 'The Enchanted Forest' captivates the viewer, creating a meditative atmosphere, as the forest of diamond leaves light up, as if by magic.
The work is a dialogue between illusion and reality. It plays between the seemingly ordinary existence of a printed wallpaper and the sense of magic created when it is brought to life with projection, where the viewer is invited into a real-life fairy tale. It points at the huge potential and possibilities that still lie ahead for the interior setting.
The project is currently open for commission for both commercial and domestic settings.
