Designed by Zurich-based artist collective, Projektil, in collaboration with Fever entertainment platform, Genesis takes guests on a four-part journey representing the first three days of creation of the Universe.
Lying on beanbags, the audience can gaze up in awe at decelerating and inspiring projections that sprawl across the ceiling and walls of the building. Overall, the experience lasts approximately 30 minutes which is perfectly proportioned to the ticket price starting at £12 for adults and £8 for children.
Art, spirituality and technology
Projektil skillfully employs 3D projection mapping, a technique that precisely captures the structure and shape of a three-dimensional space, enveloping the spectator in the ambience. Vivid imagery is intertwined with the moving sound of classical music to fully engage the senses and captivate the viewer.
The Swiss Church
Funded by contributions from the cities of Geneva and Bern in 1762, the church was an integral part of the Swiss community and until 1817, the pastor was even the official issuer of passports to Swiss citizens in London.
Despite its location, this captivating digital performance is open for everyone. In their press release, organisers Fever explain: “Genesis invites people from all walks of life, believers and non-believers alike, to step into this escapist oasis in the midst of the city and experience a world in which art, technology and spirituality collide.”
