Perception versus Being Together

March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

EST  | In person

After a video demonstrating the mechanism of perception which produces optical illusions and prevents accurate assessment of visual information, we notice that the same mechanism seems to be at work in the ways we interact with each other. We are swamped in perception wars, because the assumptions which keep us in our positions, Us-Against-Them, reside in narratives that own us, that we can’t see out of. To experience a way of being together different from the one perception enables and enforces, we engage with each other in physical exercises and activities, some as simple as a handshake.
