A 360° video essay taking place in the Lavaux region, on the border of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. The video depicts the singularity of the region’s landscape with its three suns (the lake, the brick walls, and the sun) as an important element to the production of local food products but also as a key actor in these products’ branding and storytelling. The video sets in a near future witnessing the transitioning from an industrial agricultural practice to an esoteric one ‘more open to the cosmos’. It sees in the use of streaming technologies, such as virtual reality, a potential to promote remote and new agricultural spaces and practices.
