Climate Crimes at V&A Museum
Climate Crimes is a large-scale immersive fulldome video installation featured in the Future Starts Here exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. The art work explores the complex relationships between global air pollution, climate change and human migration. Climate Crimes is a collaboration between FDRG member Michaela French and Dr Adrian Lahoud with Max Crow of NSC Creative, architect Kamil Dalkir, sound designer Mike Wyeld and technical partners GaiaNova.
This immersive film investigates how anthropogenic aerosols and other atmospheric particles originating in the wealthy nations of the global north – Europe, USA, China, and others, impact global climate systems and contribute to the desertification and migration in the Sahel region of north Africa. The spatial video content is designed to immerse the viewer in this cyclic story of cause and effect. The imagery shifts from microscopic to universal scales, incorporating the physical dome structure in the narrative movement across complex data sets, global perspectives and human stories.
