LASER Talks Nomad

The french theatre theorist and writer Antonin Artaud was probably the first person to coin the term ‘virtual’, in The Theatre and Its Double (1938). He compared alchemy with theatre by declaring that both are visual arts, which don’t convey their end. Both theatre and alchemy are fictional in the sense they are immaterial, but they always make allusions to the material. Alchemy is frequently mentioned by the historians and the philosophers when refering to the history of chemistry.
