Dreamachine, a powerful new immersive experience exploring the limitless potential of the human mind, opens today at the Temple of Peace in Cardiff where it will run until June 18.

Created by Collective Act, it brings together Turner Prize-winning artists Assemble, Grammy and Mercury Prize-nominated composer Jon Hopkins and a team of leading technologists, scientists and philosophers. Dreamachine is commissioned and presented as part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK.

This one-of-a-kind immersive experience will take over the beautiful Temple of Peace building in the heart of Cardiff, which was built in the wake of the First World War and designed to ‘change the world’ by furthering international peace efforts.

Dreamachine will take its audience on a kaleidoscopic, visual journey through flickering light and sound, all experienced through closed eyes. Audiences will take their seats in a space designed by Assemble which allows them to enjoy a shared multisensory experience that is both highly personal and collective.
