Borges for the next generation
Zoología Fantastica in the Mist is a 3D interactive storyworld which brings to life several creatures from Jorge Luis Borges’s fable anthology Zoología Fantastica. Each entry in Zoología Fantastica (or “The Book of Imaginary Beings) describes a different mythological creature from a fairy tale around the world. In our adaptation, Borges guides a little boy through a misty, magical realm in order to help him identify and understand these creatures. As each new creature appears, original music plays, 3D models of the creatures materialize, and a dynamic storyworld environment shifts with the viewer’s movements.
