We are at a turning point in human history, which reinforces the need to ask ourselves, at all times: how we want to live among us, and how we want to live with the planet? The technologies we have developed and perfected are more powerful, alter our bodies, our trajectory and impact the world. But not that we're transforming?
To produce and consume with the urgency required by modernity, we forget to reflect on how we have handled the environment, sometimes irreparably, to extract resources that meet the needs of a world increasingly urbanized. This frenzied production and responsibility of free creates a dichotomy: we have access to efficient, comfort and agility, whereas contributed aggressive climate change, and elevating soil pollution rates, water and air - difficult to ignore impacts and bring to light reflection that we can not separate the humanity of Nature.
Tomorrow Museum presents RePangeia, a sensory experience in virtual reality that urges us to rethink our relationship with the Earth and each other. Action developed by Tomorrow's Activities Laboratory - LAA, which is presented by Santander, the experience was inspired by Tecnoxamanismo, which comes amid the free software movement with the purpose of sharing perspectives and visions traditional communities - indigenous, Maroons, riverside - and social movements. So, creates a meeting between ancestry and technical, between traditional knowledge and technology.
In virtual reality experience, developed in partnership with Intel, three people "are" in another space-time and are called to help a middle uncontrolled environment due to dissociation between Humanity and Nature. The title is inspired by Pangea, the supercontinent that existed millions of years ago. Your name, derived from the Greek, It means "the whole earth", concept which refers to the first time “our home” It was seen in its entirety Space. This fact changed our perception about the planet: It was the first time we realized our frailty and finitude in the vastness of the Universe. In this virtual collective futuristic ritual, participants discover the need for a common understanding that we are interdependent and connected, and, Only in this way, we can save the world and ourselves.
Tomorrow Activities Laboratory is presented by Santander. The RePangeia exhibition is the result of a partnership with Intel.
