Work in progress presented during the CAFÉ-CAUSERIE – Budding creations!

L’effet Hyde is based on the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mister Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Written in 1886, this fantastic tale—harbinger of modern psychology—forcefully expresses the duality of the soul. L’effet Hyde makes this chemical thriller its own and tries to expose the meteorological manifestations of the unconscious.
