This thought-provoking video projection explores the tension between the future of the digital metaverse and our real world – the one in which climate change poses a very real threat. The installation gives viewers a preview of what the world could look like in the year 2055 – five years after humanity failed to comply with the Paris Agreement. While this fictional universe can be rebooted again and again – the real world cannot. Prepare for goosebumps.
