Friday 25
Music Hologram – Nikola Tesla, an audio-visual project; Miša (audio - his first published CD) and Marica (visual ambience – video and 3D animations) were inspired by Nikola Tesla: his inventions and experiments (high voltage electricity, artificial lightings, Tesla coil) as well as his intriguing personality (rare ability of mental visualisation, phobias and obsessions, particularly that one with numbers – the number 3 playing an important role); following Tesla’s ideas Marica examines the cognitive role of images, forgotten for centuries, but everywhere accepted in ancient cultures   https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=kR7xow31DuY,  https://youtu.be/dP40QA22a-8
