A “star gate” as a solution to keep cities connected at the peak of the pandemic? The Vilnius, Lithuania portal is a circular “door” near its train station that connects to a portal in Lublin. The portals both have large screens and cameras that broadcast live images between the two cities— a kind of digital bridge, according to its creators— meant to encourage people to “rethink the meaning of unity.”
What a fun and interesting idea. International acclaimed magician Rokas fell in love with the idea and recently took himself on the road the the site of the portal in Vilnius, Lithuania, performing a special magic trick for fans both in Vilnius, and its connected Polish community in Lublin – over 375 miles away. The special event won attention from local and international media, reaffirming Rokas’s position as one of the world’s most popular and most creative active magicians.
