For the Kids
See below for a few activities for the kids to enjoy around Melbourne…
August 10 @ 6pm – 10pm
Augment your reality. AI, bionics and smart devices are here to extend and enhance your senses. What are the possible futures of human perception? At this event combining performance, storytelling, and experimentation, make sense of the world of the senses, and find the limits to your own. Tell a story about the patterns hidden in the night sky, imagine what trees might have to say. Ponder the concept of common sense, and what animals can perceive that humans can’t. Listen to the music of the elephants, the last moments of the Mars Rover, and the unfolding of the evolution of species .Challenge your senses to work together, become aware of senses such as kinaesthesia. Learn about how our senses mingle in synesthetic experiences, and sometimes fool us with hallucinations.
