Plato’s Allegory of the Cave is a philosophical discussion found in book vii of The Republic that discusses reality and knowledge based on perception and experiences.

Inspired by Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, this is a surreal narrative that communicates the idea that what we see and trust to be the reality may not always be real, due to human ignorance and the influence of institutionalized systems in society. We took a modern twist to the allegory of the cave and tied in controversial themes such as increased dependency on technology, indifference to environmental conditions, and accepting of social systems.
