About this work:
"I feel a strong inner connection to the unusual olive tree growing near my home. This olive tree was rescued from death and transplanted in a new location, which lies near the spot where it used to grow in the territory of a small town near Jerusalem. The tree has now become the town's symbol. It is 2500 years old, and it certainly "remembers" ancient times. It’s biological memory is a real "database" of our planet. Using the technology of creating 360-degrees mapping for virtual reality (VR) allows me to "turn on" spherical vision and create a cosmogonic feeling of the Creation of the world, which this tree evokes in me. After all, 360 degrees (2π in mathematics) is the reality of our world. At the same time, as an artist, I am interested in the dialogue of a natural object with a new technological reality, which becomes a real co-author of my art works". (Galina Bleikh)
