Floating Forest‎ > ‎

The Making Of

for more images see ATMOS website


"Creating ‘Floating Forest Oracle’ was a profound spiritual experience: like being guided by invisible forces of nature to do something of meaning for others. I always wanted to create a divination tool; although it could only manifest through collaboration with Vahakn, and Thomas who brought us together. We have created a magical floating journey, which people will never forget."
