Karen Palmer is the “Storyteller from the Future”.

I came back to enable you to survive what is to come and that is why I created RIOT. RIOT is an emotionally responsive film that watches you back to navigate you through a dangerous riot.

You are confronted by a riot cop. Respond with fear and the film goes in one direction respond with anger and it goes in another.

RIOT makes the player aware of their subconscious behaviour and implicit bias and enables them to consciously build new neurological pathways in their brain, to override automatic behaviour responses and create new ones.

Combining the genres of film, A.I. technology, gaming, art and behavioural psychology and the parkour philosophy of moving through fear.

Why storytelling? Research in neuroscience and cognitive psychology has shown that stories are typically more effective at changing people’s minds than rational argument.

Why technology? How will humanity evolve within this next fourth industrial revolution that we are moving towards with our relationship with technology?

We need to consciously create our future with technology.

Karen Palmer delivers Talks, facilitates bespoke Workshops and offers Consultancy on all the topics associated with her work.
