View today as from a distance, the idea is to “experience the feeling of being projected thousands of light years away to view our current world as if it were a fossil, geological eras from the present time, resulting in a feeling of being suspended in a limbo between a now distant past and a still distant future.”
Throughout the exhibition, many expressions and artistic languages will be interconnected: music, theatre, cinema, architecture and dance represented not just as side events but as integral moments of the show, helping to build an immersive and captivating narrative.
