Sink or Swim experience documentationWhat would you preserve? As we pondered this question, we came to the realization that water, as a natural element, can be preserved intellectually.

Virtual Reality experience
AirAware VideoAirAware is an immersive video staged in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea, where air pollution rates are highest in the Greater London area. The video highlights the effects of different environmental factors on the area, causes for pollution and possible changes that can be made to improve the overall quality of life in the borough. We believe that by addressing and explaining this issue we can raise awareness and affect people's personal habits and decisions regarding the climate crisis.

The Psychobserver Mobius Strip SimulationFocusing on emotional health, we decided to try and give participants the chance to face up to the world, to life’s tragedies, and to their own sense of helplessness. Not necessarily in a devastating way, but to help them discover, through a mental healing process, how they can deal, adapt, and engage with reality as individuals with agency. Not just as passive observers.
