Dive in – An illustrated tale

Dive in – An illustrated tale is an underwater journey, through revolving landscapes and unexpected monsters, a world of breathing caves and valleys, tiny fishes and huge, hiding whales.

Taking inspiration from my favourite designers of all time, Fortunato Depero, Enzo Mari, Bruno Munari, i tried to create, like them, an uncommon product for children and grown ups.

With a set of 33 looping gifs, I wrote the story, designed and animated the huge canvas (5760×21120 pixel). Luigi Mastandrea created the generative music and Paula Masterton accompanied the video with her wonderful voice.

But I also wanted my daughter to play with it, so I made a 33 pieces modular puzzle that she can rearrange to create new shapes and designs.
