This first collaboration between Loris Gréaud and Mathieu Lehanneur involved their shared concerns- state-of-the-art technology, organic ecosystems, intelligent forms - and their distinct fields of expression - art and design.
On Nike's request, to illustrate Flywire technology and process, they went into partnership to develop this unidentified living object. Between mental landscape and furtive decor, Depth Ballet takes us to the deepest abysses: where nothing seems to respond to the physical laws of the surface; where all movement appears slower; where light through bioluminescence is the primary means of communication between beings.
