High Arctic: A Monument to a Changing Region

An interactive installation by digital design group UnitedVisualArtists invites visitors to explore the haunting landscapes of an altered Arctic in the year 2100.

UnitedVisualArtists describes the project as “a vast abstracted arctic landscape made with sculptures, light, and sound. Using a UV torch to interact with animations, visitors will discover 3,000 glaciers that will have melted by the end of this century and be confronted with human impact to this environment over the course of history.”

Can a visceral experience of an distant region prompt people to form a personal relationship with a place undergoing rapid change?
