Escape to Reality

Is seeing believing, or might reality be a hallucination? We teamed up with neuroscientist Anil Seth and held an immersive installation which explored the world and our perception of it.


We debuted the installation at Nesta’s FutureFest, one of Europe’s largest festivals of the future. 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.




‘Guerilla Science created the installation ‘Escape to Reality’ for FutureFest in 2018. The team were always highly professional in their approach and execution, with a very creative and collaborative approach to problem solving. They were skilled in bridging the gap between specialist researchers and a generalist audience, and devised an inventive format to communicate a complex set of ideas.’
