At the TED conference Frans Lanting presented photographs from his book LIFE that shows the story of life from the big bang to the present day.

A three channel video installation was produced to tell the story without words. Three projectors provide video coverage on all sides of a 5 foot tall rotating stretched fabric sculpture that acts as the screen.

The rotating screen creates unique relationships at the edges of the projected images as they blend together. Patrick Zimmerli composed the final 14m soundtrack.
