June 2013 Аudio-visual/mapping installation for Water Tower Art Fest 2013, Sofia. The main group of people who participated in the project was:  Borislav Ginov, Mihail Vurbanov – creative & realization; Tzveta Ermenkova – texts & script; Me – animation & mapping; I/O Band –  original music & sound design. However in the last days/nights many other friends contributed to the final result with their time and help. Big thanks to them! short live version making of full version
