The Dream Machine was a multi-player, olfactory organ performance that combined smell with sound, touch and light in a single interactive experience.
In 1931 Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World, a cautionary tale where technology plays the role of a sedative as people succumb to mere sensation, losing their imagination and existing only as passive, “feeling machines”.
Are we far from the world Huxley imagined? How can we use technology to create a more engaged world?
The Dream Machine was a vision of the future where we play with the whole spectrum of human emotion, tap into our senses, and feel truly alive. This multi-sided instrument was designed to trigger 10 different emotions by using synesthesia to create a symphony of light, sound and smell!
