Shown here are three postcard contributions by FL@33's Agathe Jacquillat experimenting with an asthetic somewhere between photographic abstraction and illustration using digital techniques to treat pictures taken of clusters of leaves that swim in turbulent water as if they were flying through the wind.
___ Another three FL@33 2016 contributions created by Tomi Vollauschek were posted on a separate project page – you can see them here.
