What is Reality? Threads 2021 Visits with Dr. Charles Raison to talk about our changing reality.
From Carolyn Kallenborn
As part of Threads 2021: Reality, Design and Fashion Event, the student team talks to Dr. Charles Raison about the nature of reality. The discussion touches on how our reality has changed, what happens when consensual shared reality breaks down, and how unusual treatments and breaks, in reality, can rewire the brain to create a new understanding.

This interview was developed and produced by Threads 2021: Design and Fashion Event:
Reality? This year, reality has changed for all of us. We are physically distant but globally connected. We spend most of our time at home with our families. We see friends and grandparents on zoom. These changes have permeated everything from how we work, how we design, how we think, and how we dream.
Join us for Threads 2021: Reality? Virtual Design and Fashion Event, a socially-distant, large-scale outdoor projection and on-line exhibition. Take a step onto the virtual runway with UW-Madison’s Textile and Fashion Design students as they explore their new reality.
