Exeter Phoenix is pleased to present Jezreel’s Tower, a new 360° video that tells the story of James Jershom Jezreel, his apocalyptic Victorian cult, and the building of their extraordinary headquarters.
The film is presented through specially adapted Oculus Go headsets alongside digital wallpapers, costumes from the film, replica publications and framed production drawings.

Walter uses the story of the cult to allegorise the spread of memes, demonstrating how viruses of the mind can get a free ride on the back of art, music, and architecture in order to gain a selective advantage in the war for our attention.
