On one hand, the title ‘Inventing Sensations’ refers to a common laboratory practice: of controlling environmental stimulus to objectively map and measure a subject’s physical and cognitive reactions. Yet simultaneously, it points towards a potential future that knowledge from the brain sciences could unlock: a world of trans-realities, of environmentally or technologically enhanced emotions, sensations and movements.
Through presentations and screenings the panel will propose potential applications of brain knowledgein culture, and consider ways these may destabilise our learned habits of perception and cognition.
