A new, one-of-a-kind immersive experience

Created by Collective Act, in collaboration with Turner Prize-winning artists Assemble, Grammy and Mercury nominated composer Jon Hopkins, and a team of leading technologists, scientists and philosophers, Dreamachine invites you on a magical journey to explore the extraordinary potential of your mind.

Conjured entirely by light and music, the colourful world of the Dreamachine will unfold behind your closed eyes – created by your own brain and completely unique to you.

The Perception Census

Put your senses to the test

Take part in the Perception Census and help uncover one of the greatest mysteries to science, the mind.

When two people look at a blue sky, do they experience the same blue? Maybe not! Through a series of fun interactive tasks on colour, time, illusion and more, learn about your own powers of perception, and help our team of leading scientists and philosophers discover the unique ways in which we each experience the world around us.
