The Background World is an immersive, organic, and pulsating environment. It is composed of vivid digital mandalas bringing us on a psychedelic journey through layers of earthly and submarine landscapes. By distorting biological life and transforming it into an unconscious digital place, this work encourages us to observe and experience the world from an inner perspective.Mélissa Faivre, born 1989 in France, is an experimental video artist based in Berlin. Her contemplative and mesmerising work seeks to provoke questions on the nature of perception. By experimenting with editing techniques, she creates images that present blended and distorted realities that seek to test the temporal and spatial co-ordinates foundational to the perceptive experience.
