we are brains that live in bodies that live in buildings.
And for each of us, our physical body and the spaces we inhabit seem very real, so real that we rarely question whether things could seem otherwise. But our sense of reality – of presence in the world – might just be a story told to us by our brain, a neural fiction.
NO PLACE is a digital film experience that explores real and virtual spaces, commissioned by Brighton’s White Night Festival. The performance was installed within Brighton’s iconic Modernist apartment block Embassy Court during the festival in October 2011.
Created in collaboration with the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex, NO PLACE challenges the architecture of your experience.
How do we feel a place to be REAL?
