Event Info

This forest is changing… Do you see it?

Step into the virtual forest and experience a one-of-a-kind, durational event: GONDWANA.

Immerse yourself in the world’s oldest tropical rainforest, an explorable, free-roaming representation of the Daintree Rainforest in Far North Queensland, Australia.

Like the rainforest itself, Gondwana is a system of possibilities. Weather, seasons, and biodiversity shift and change as you navigate a vast map of ancient trees, rugged mountains and idyllic beaches.

But a broader narrative stirs below: over the course of each showing, the rainforest degrades, artistically rendering climate data projections up to the year 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 showing is unrepeatable and speculative: a quiet meditation on time, change and loss in an irreplaceable ecosystem.
