This study work was part of an interactive exhibition project about the story of illusions. Our curating direction is based on a cross-disciplinary approach and focused on the wide diversity of skills and inventions that have developed the aesthetic of illusions artifices.
The edition is composed of three books. The first one is an historical catalogue designed as a toolbox, it lists textual and iconographic contents through the fields of Living Arts, Visual Arts and Cinema. The second section develops the set design’s concept of the exhibition. We have imagined a route which combine immersive and interactive installations that provide the experience of illusions and materials that display historical and educational contents. Last, a contents library sources the whole documents and works mentioned in the historical catalogue.
