The installation is an ensemble of three triangle-shaped pieces suspended between trees. Each structure consists of four vertical layers that grow smaller systematically. In the day they are white sculptural elements floating in the forest. In the night they transform via projections to portray movement and textures found in nature. The construction allows the installations to sway in the wind changing their shapes in calming motion. The installation's angular shapes create a contrast with the organic natural shapes of the forest. The pieces are suspended in different heights creating a spiralling movement towards the sky. The name Natantis is Latin for the word floating, which describes the airiness of the installation.
