Entry Description

Set in 2022, this project focuses on 3 animal species who currently inhabit Antarctica and at extreme risk from the 6th mass extinction.

The exhibition is designed without signage and instead sends the narratives to visitor’s phones as they move through the space. Focus on using immersive and empathic design to engage visitor’s emotions, through exposure to the horrors these animals are facing.

This exposure works beyond shock tactics, and instead intended to encourage compassion and empathy in the hope that will galvanize the public to save some of these species from extinction.
