Ecotariums in the North Pole

The Future North Ecotarium project is
based on the premise that within the
next hundred years our climate will be
irreversibly altered. Massive migrations
of urban populations will move north
to escape severe flooding and
increased temperatures. Area inside
the Artic regions will warm up
significantly, making their occupation
newly desirable. Real-Estate values
will shift to privilege northern climates
that formerly had almost no human
inhabitants. To underscore the
intensity of such a global shift, we
have moved entire cities. The reality
of hundreds of millions of people
relocating their respective centers of
culture, business, and life is almost
incomprehensible. We anticipate this
polemical representation will impact
our perception of tomorrow. The
movie installation premiered at:
MASS MoCA Badlands: New Horizons
in Landscape.

drifting towards the poles.  Millions of
people will need to migrate into a
more hospitable climate at the newly
melted polar caps.
