Escape to Reality - A tour of consciousness

Guerilla Science

Escape to Reality

Where does our perception of reality come from, and under what circumstances do we experience the world as real? Festival goers discovered how our brains create an interpretation of the world and delved deeper into the conscious self through this video installation, before joining a discussion with neuroscientists from the University of Sussex.

This installation has been developed by Guerilla Science, in collaboration with neuroscientist Anil Seth, Katharine Round, and director and producer, and Jamie Perera, composer. The project is supported by the Wellcome Trust.
