Gondwana

Reservation

Synopsis

Gondwana is a constantly-evolving, multiplayer virtual ecosystem that explores the possible futures of the world’s oldest rainforest, the Daintree. Weather, seasons, and biodiversity dynamically shift and change as you freely explore a vast map of ancient trees and rare animals. But a broader narrative stirs below: over the day’s exhibition, the rainforest declines in line with climate data projections from 1990 to 2090. The only salve to this seemingly inevitable decline is people: the more time an audience spends in Gondwana, the more resilient the forest becomes. Each day of exhibition the forest is reborn anew, bringing to life a new climate future for this rainforest. Gondwana is a meditation on time, change and climate action in the world’s oldest rainforest.
