At the beginning of the XX° century, the great magic shows were influenced by the last physical and optical science’s knowledges.As the Pepper’s Ghost technique or the Phantasmagoria devices, illusion and its effects are both relied on a rational scientific demonstration and a sophisticated staging so as to provoke on the public sensations and strong visual experiences.
In the form of a magic box, this interactive installation designed by Studio Diplomates, proposes to the visitor to discover and get into the hidden world. First step to reach this mysterious space, the visitor has to live the experience of his disappearance. Entering the box, he starts to vanish – slowly – until becoming invisible.
Will he reappear again ?
