The animation derives from the chinoiserie style frescos on the Hillside Palace of Pillnitz Castle. Fragments of these appear on revolving globes, like heavenly spheres. The three globes allude to the science fiction trilogy Trisolaris by Cixin Liu. Motifs from the frescos come adrift from the “planets” and morph into contemporary imagery from China, giving rise to a modern “chinoiserie”: Thyes has never been to China so far and researches her knowledge about the country in literature, news media and the www.
