The inner lives of trees

Silent Observers

What if trees could talk? Which stories would they tell throughout the centuries?

Silent Observers is an art installation made of tree discs that are brought to life through precise projection mapping.

Large trees have long life spans and silently endure the changing times around them throughout history. By accentuating their innate growth rings with animated projection content, we draw attention to the fact that trees are living beings.

Tunnel vision


Macula is a first-of-its-kind sculpture made out of sustainably harvested bamboo precisely mapped with bespoke video animation.

This installation is an immersive experience as the audience is invited to walk through this artwork’s  mesmerising, pulsing light show which invokes the perception of an abstract journey as the visitor wanders deeper into it.

Macula premiered at Vivid Sydney 2022 and is now a touring art installation. Please contact us for for availability and pricing.

The façade of the Museum of Contemporary Art at Circular Quay lit up with the art of famous Australian artist Helen Eager – an 8 minute projection show designed and animated by H0RSE in close collaboration with Eager showcasing a chronological journey through her career.

Our aim is to provide a brief escape from your everyday life. We want to show you something you’ve never seen before.

We specialise in projection mapping of animated content onto complex organic surfaces and façades.

"I had the opportunity to work with Rico over the last 5 years. He is one of the most professional, creative and dedicated designers I have known. His ability to come up with new concepts, understand design briefs and initiate execution is second to none. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact him for the next project, knowing that I’ll receive a high quality product."

"Rico is very pleasant and easy to deal with. He worked with us on a major rebranding project. He had some brilliant ideas for the logo and "Kelato Equine Wellness Concept" graphic! He managed to interpret our thoughts and requests (often whilst they were still being solidified in our own minds) and turn them into something we are proud of."
Adam Blackhall – Kelato Animal Health
"Rico is an original thinker and brings to branding, design and digital media a creative and productive mind-set. It is rare that you work with someone who can inspire, develop and lead teams to his level. Rico's branding work and effort on media campaigns was tremendous."
