Deltas - An Interactive Expedition

Crossmedia Deltas - An Interactive Expedition

River deltas are impressive landscapes with a unique biodiversity.
The five-part TV documentary series Deltas of the World takes place on four continents and impressively shows the endangered, spectacular border areas between the mainland and the sea. From the Arctic to the tropics.

Where the films stop, the award-winning and internationally acclaimed virtual reality installation Inside Tumucumaque starts: It enables the user to closely discover the Amazon rainforest from the perspective of native animals and to slip into their role. In a sensual experience, the user gets to know, how a poison dart frog perceives its surroundings or how it feels to lurk in wait of prey as a caiman.

The virtual reality installation is flanked by “Inside Tumucumaque - a 360 degree 3D documentation”. A magical sunrise on the shores of the Amazon. A river cruise through the mysterious morning mist. A spectacular flight over the majestic treetops: The 360 degree film was filmed at the original locations and takes the viewer into the real jungle of the largest rainforest reserve in the world.
