Sense Factory CA/QC+DE — SENSEFACTORY
SENSEFACTORY is a spectacular, large-scale performative installation combining architecture, sound, smell, light, and AI technology into an immersive multi-sensory experience. In the 1920s, László Moholy-Nagy envisioned a new kind of theater for the senses with the Bauhaus. 100 years later, this utopian vision can now be experienced. Created by an international team of artists, architects, designers, and programmers, SENSEFACTORY sends the audience on a multi-sensory journey in an evolving landscape continually changing form and behavior.
