When it comes to putting together virtual forest installations, Miguel Chevalier knows exactly how to engage an audience and keep people interested.

The artist has used a digital approach to represent nature in this installation, featuring moss and flowers that come across in quite a lifelike manner, considering they are all fake. Interestingly, the plants even grow in front of everyone, so instead of staying stagnant on the ground, they are constantly changing like nature in reality. The entire process is quite beautiful, and it makes one think about the process of the environment in everyday life. The colors of everything also shift, representing the various seasons of the year, as it all moves from greens to browns and even white.
