Indulge in a fleshy live experience.
Reconnect with your primal being through a progression of sensorial confrontations. Recalibrate your connection to the world around you – the future depends on it.
Sensory Experiments is a call for change – a Manifesto for Sensory Intelligence. Part social experiment, part philosophical inquiry and a fully immersive performance piece, this innovative project is forged from a collaboration between two of the city’s (and, indeed, the world’s) most progressive and inquiring minds.
An eclectic cohort of creative contributors has been assembled to design a provocative experience intended to awaken the senses. Allow internationally renowned chef Justin James (Executive Chef of Vue de monde and Iki Jime and previously of Eleven Madison Park & Noma Copenhagen) to reignite your sense of taste. Avail yourself to floral artist Hattie Molloy’s interrogation of sensual perception with her reckoning of the Sublime. Absorb and participate in live-choreographed performances, and be aurally challenged by the masters behind the Sydney Opera House’s iconic acoustics.
Come, bear witness, bring curiosity. Immerse yourself in this never-before seen collective. Guided by Sense Whisperers, you’ll wander through a series of live, uniquely designed corporeal experiences. Your emotional and physical responses will leave a digital imprint as the results of Sensory Experiments are transmitted in real time.
Connect to self, connect to others, and connect to nature – and leave your mark on a living, breathing manifesto for living.
