In the bygone era of the Victorian parlor, mediums captivated audiences with a host of enigmatic and seemingly supernatural phenomena. The séances, held in dimly lit rooms, stirred the imagination, leaving participants and onlookers pondering the mysteries of the spirit world. With Enigma, we embark on a journey to recreate some of these phenomena, not as a means of deception, but as a fascinating exploration into the power of the human mind.
