Take a journey into the wonderland between philosophy and science. Find out about the Moebius strip that connects back and front and where you can walk on a straight line and come back to where you came from. Make Moebius strips yourself, and discover the odd things that happen when you cut them and glue them together.

And feel how a rubber hand seems to become yours. Does it feel as real as the other parts of your body? What does is it feel like to be you? And what would it feel like to be an octopus or a bat? Can science find out?

Most of the event will take place in Norwegian, but we are happy to welcome also English speaking visitors.
