A snail invents the wheel and goes through a cultural evolution to finally get back to its origin.
A laser animation is projected at an angle of 360° onto a column, so that the audience has to walk around to follow the course of the snail. The projection surface is of a phosphorescent material, which creates an after-glowing trail that fades out slowly.
