Once Upon Us is a composite art project by Francesca Lando/Immuto collective in collaboration with sound artist Alessandro Baldessari, choreographer Riccardo Buscarini and Queen Mary University of London.
Inspired by the latest medical research on how our environment influences our genetic expression and how memories could move across generations through DNA coding, Once Upon Us explores the blurring boundaries of our individuality across space and time.
The project consisted in 3 parts: a participatory and sensory installation playing with our sense of space and Self, a conversation about the interplay of ancient and new theories on the theme of ancestral memory, a participatory sculptural installation questioning how our choices shape our relationship with ourselves and the world around us.
Where and when do we start? Where and when do we end? Are the boundaries of who we are really as defined in time and space as we think?
