The atmosphere is a co-creation of all breathing beings, you don’t exist except in relationship to everything else. The trees, mycelium, bacteria, pollinators, rivers, oceans are as much a part of you as your own branching body."
—Barnaby Churchill Steel, Marshmallow Laser Feast
Evolver" is a collective virtual reality experience that drops audiences deep inside the landscape of the body, following the flow of oxygen through humans' branching ecosystem to a single "breathing" cell. Through this narrative, it becomes clear that breath not only sparks life but connects us to the natural world through the cycle of respiration. Directed by Marshmallow Laser Feast and executive-produced by Cate Blanchett, Terrence Malick, and veteran producer Edward R. Pressman, the film is narrated by Blanchett and features an original score by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead. The visuals are based on medical research and state-of-the-art human body scanning.
