The secret activity of many living species is one of a multitude of hidden stories unfolding in the natural world around us. These stories go far beyond the spectrum of experiences allowed by human senses. «In the Eyes of the Animal» is one experience in a series of immersive Virtual Reality installations created by Marshmallow Laser Feast that encourage us to leave our human-centric vision behind and remember the subjective quality of perception.
