Traditionally, the human experience has been defined through five recognized senses: sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. But these senses are not as concrete as we may believe, and advances in neuroscience and technology may give us a far broader perspective.
This workshop invites you to investigate the five senses and explore how they can be hacked in different ways. Scientists have explored how the brain’s neuroplasticity (the ability to change and adapt) can expand and augment our senses. Innovations in technology and a deeper understanding of how our senses work are allowing us to fundamentally change our perception of the world. This opens up the tantalizing possibility of augmenting our perceptual experience with sensory inputs previously out of reach.
