Nikola Tesla sends Theda Bara to Mars is a cinematic universe in which film references are pulled apart and reinterpreted using a wild array of materials and mediums. Characters and props collaged with sparkling, suspended textiles and fleshy sculptural forms drip from the ceiling via unexpected structures and flamboyant mobiles. The vibe is, in Contos’ words, ‘an overfilled raspberry coke slushy… a pillow fight in heels… an exquisite corpse.’
