The Other Place project culminated in a three-month performance fiction residency, where AAS carried out a series of experiments in The Cage to explore and bring about The Other Place. As part of this process, various groups manifested, and shifted between times, dimensions and identities to find their own paths to this space.
Events included Psychic Experiments (testing the effects of The Cage on various extra sensory techniques such as Remote Viewing and Zener cards), Lucid Dream Training (Teams of sleepers attempted to meet up in The Other Place)
