A sound-and-light experience of the city of Jerusalem in 3D

Imagine it's the year 3615. The world is marking the 1,600th anniversary of the birth of Simone the Hermetic. You're invited to stand facing the Mount, to don headphones and to view an audio-visual simulation that recreates Jerusalem exactly as it was during the lifetime of Simone, in the year 2015. Through Yael Bartana's sound installation, we made our way through the streets and locations where Simone's journey began, and also where it probably ended – with the disaster of the molecular disintegration of the city.
