A journey through immersive, interactive installations and digital works, the exhibition invites visitors to experience a range of perspectives of our shared planet, exploring Earth as a community to which we all belong – humans as just one species among millions.

The exhibition aims to reignite respect for our essential, complex biosphere and inspire awe and wonder for our beautiful planet. Explore different ways of existing on Earth and find ways to reconnect with them while looking at the role technology has to play in deepening our understanding and connection to the natural world.
