WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Mastermind is an immersive staging of an elaborate, futuristic multimedia "game," waged between two "Hyperestheticnaut" players (artists that have prepared half of an agreed-upon epic story of cosmic battles between forces of Order and Chaos), with "play" to be administered by a projected game master, who acts as a conductor and master of ceremonies. The players attack and counterattack each other as if in a chess match, but the goal is not the decimation of combaters, but the production of a great work of art. Inspired by The Glass Bead Game by Hermann Hesse, Mastermind proposes to present an actual contest, a battle of wits between two artists, merging a shared vision into a cosmic battle that appears as a holographic live human-chessboard area where once there was a theater.
