DOCUMENTARY FILM & INSTALLATION DESIGN
On the small islands of Matsu there is a natural phenomenon known to the locals as 藍眼淚 or in english, Blue Tears. Appearing only in ideal conditions once a year, the shores of Matsu glow in the dark with bioluminescent algae.
We were commissioned to design an experience that can be viewed at all times of the year. Fortunately, we were able to make it to the remote island to capture footage of the algae itself. Which, by the way, has never been done. Blessed with ideal conditions and a Blue Tears superbloom, we walked away with the perfect foundation upon which to build and experience that is utterly unique.
Characteristically, the film itself is not meant for mere online distribution. The film is designed to be the key element of a floor-to-ceiling projection installation to be built as the introductory experience of the Ecology Center of Matsu.
