Futura Magia Presents: In Nomine Hecate & Utere Felix

IN NOMINE HECATE // This project aims to change the negative connotations associated with modern Magic while providing the audience with a tangible, wonderful illusionary experience. 

The result is an original storytelling event which narrates the life of Greek Mythological Goddess, Hecate and took place in one of London’s most mystical locations, The Abney Park Cemetery. Participants went on a night time immersive walk, stopping along the way to listen to the story, while it was being illustrated by Magical visual effects. The designed props were all modern adaptations of classical illusions. 

UTERE FELIX // With this project, I aim to highlight the importance of believing in the power that objects, amulets and lucky charms can have on cultures and beliefs systems as well as individuals. 

The outcome is a collection of images that illustrate and celebrate those reassuring objects, from all around the world.
