About this video

This project explores how ancestral ways of storytelling provoke our imagination and how they become a platform for re-enchantment. It is a literature experiment based on 26 participants' imagination of the Hanging Garden of Babylon—a poem, created by collective imagination, written in a customized script-based mono-linear type, forms an architecture of poem with no fixed ways of reading it, in a 3D space. The motion shows the process of searching words of emotions or actions.
