Kamchatka ’16 is a trip in a fantasy landscape, which alternates dream and reality, by guiding the visitor through a world, which is real and visionary at the same time. Kamchatka is a peninsula in the far east of Siberia, with strong volcanic activity; extraordinary vegetation grows and peculiar animals live in this area. This world is as far and mysterious as Tartarian land used to be perceived by Europeans in the middle ages, and it is now brought to Blenio Valley, involving, completing, and integrating local nature and crafts.
