The exhibition is accompanied by a schedule of free film screenings, lectures, and symposia that further explore these topics. Last but not least, the event also showcases the Lab team's architects, graphic designers, special contributors, and other emerging-talent Lab members working in education, science, sustainability, art, and technology.</p> <p> "Participatory City" will continue until Jan. 5, 2014.

While our five senses help us perceive the physical world, unconscious perception connects us to the realm of intuition.
