"Then comes the real treat, but really: I was able to enter a surreal, almost extraterrestrial world that could feature David Lynch or Tim Burton film set!" 

  exhibition concept  

The cross-media documentary Mechanical Figures – Inspired by Tesla - has become a “walk through the movie experience” - a spatial gallery installation, with the main intention of guiding visitors through Tesla’s mind - recreating Tesla's last conceptual patent - MIND PROJECTOR

This unique concept exhibition, highlighting
the importance of IDEAS - as yet nonmaterial but most important and real generators of new life. 

In this complex 
STORYTELLING INSTALLATION, like in an Alice in Wonderland journey, visitors will travel from Croatia to New Zealand, “meeting” Mark Twain, Stanford White, J.E.R. Houdin, Thomas Edison, Georges Méliès, Terry Gilliam, Laurie Anderson, Marina Abramovic, Andy Serkis ...  to mention just a few.

Visitors discover the secret behind the genius minds, through the influences of Tesla’s work in the field of development of ILLUSIONISM, PHOTOGRAPHY, FILM, MUSIC, SCIENCE FICTION, COMPUTER GAMES, COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY, ASTRONOMY, ART DECO, ENTERTAINING and GAMING INDUSTRY, starting from the idea that to be inspired by Tesla means to awaken in yourself the code of creative life, which is the main message that exhibition wants to convey to the public at large.
