The “farewell paths” are corridors of varying colours, in which visitors can pass through different stages of mourning, reminiscence and parting. The interaction of light and shade, of black, white and colour effectively expresses the aspect of transcendence and transition from this side to the other, from finite to infinite and from life to death, in all of its facets.

The digital islands we created wish to give a contribution to the cause, giving people an all round, three-dimensional, point of view on mountain’s ecosystem.
