The Snail on the Slope is a generative film based on a book of the same title by Strugatsky brothers. The novel is set on an unknown planet, where humans have a base from which they are investigating and trying to conquer the Forest. The Forest is constantly changing and fighting back. It is also dangerous and there are a lot of unexplained phenomena that they are discovering.
The film is made of five chapters, which critically address the questions of artistic and scientific efforts to understand nature. The topics that arise in those chapters are: sublime view on nature, role of knowledge, ubiquitous bureaucracy and destruction of nature.
All the scenes are generated with creative coding platform - Processing.
