Wade into the subconscious waters of one of the greatest minds in history using XR: As audiences traverse the resonate pools of the space their bodies act as conductive spires translating the vibrations of the opera’s bass into the pervasive emotive undertones of Tesla’s mind. The waters acting as his subconscious convey body-encompassing emotions, whilst the overtones of the opera experienced through the VR headsets rain down from his conscious mind bring a visual narrative that harmonise with the bodily experience of the audience. The audience is free to explore the mindscape as a living time-capsule that responds to their physical location as if they were traversing his neural pathways with the memories of Tesla’s life portrayed in pockets of narrative.
