Synopsis: The Black Cabinet is inspired by the techniques of “Spirit Painting” performed at the end of XIX century. Introduced by mediums during the heydays of spiritualism, these works, usually painted in oil, were portraits of deceased from a distant past. However, unlike the “Spirit Paintings” process, the apparition in The Black Cabinet is a prediction of what is to come, a vision of the 1920s.
