Is seeing believing, or might reality be a hallucination? We teamed up with neuroscientist Anil Seth to create an immersive installation that explores the world and our perception of this.
Our film and sound installation, Escape to Reality, investigated the nature of conscious experience. Inspired by the work of leading brain scientist Anil Seth, and in collaboration with Katharine Round, director and producer, and Jamie Perera, composer.
We debuted the installation at Nesta’s Future Fest in July. Audiences were invited to step through the dark curtains, don a pair of headphones, and investigate the science behind consciousness. Following the film screening, we hosted discussions with neuroscientists from the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex and discovered how our brains create an interpretation of the world around us.
