SciArt Experience Consulting creates story-driven immersive activations rooted in the art and science of sensory exploration that move your audience from brand awareness to brand intimacy.

We offer two paths for our sensory adventures. Which will you choose?


Science Apparent events allow science to take center stage in the form of demonstrations, wisdom-laden mini-orations, and hands-on interactive, full-sensory experimentations.


Science Unseen events use the power of biology and psychology to expand and deepen the guest’s sensory experience, but is invisible to guests, by design.  

Both roads are paved in golden cobblestones of auditory and palate-pleasing artistry that will bring your product and story to vibrant life.

So how does it work?

We transform your vision into an event that is much more than a party. We compose a truly immersive experience by going beyond visual engagement and incorporating all the five senses in a carefully crafted symphony of visceral enjoyment.

Focus your energy


Stories, fueled by sensory engagement, are scientifically proven to create lasting memories. Using the unique stories of your brand as a foundation, our events move your customers from brand awareness to brand intimacy.


Want a customer for life? Make them feel something! Through the application of biological and psychological research, SciArt designs fully customized sensory ecosystems to maximize your brand story and customer engagement.


What is Brand Intimacy?

More and more, people are looking for deep and purposeful connections with the brands and organizations they interact with, not just free drinks tickets and fancy small bites.

SciArt can satiate your guests' desire both for good food and drink and true connection, engaging them in a meaningful, visceral connection with your brand that moves far beyond familiarity to deep intimacy. Our activations are perfect for small audiences of 10 all the way up to large groups of 500.
