About this event

An immersive art installation exploring the intergenerational impacts of Climate Change. Ghostly projections will animate plastic structures formed from societies detritus, distorted music and whispers will envelop the space, and future generations will push their warnings through layers of time and plastic. Created by Laura Collins (theatre-maker), Alex Borowiak (climate scientist), Louis Stevens (composer) and Conor Jamieson (film-maker), 'Plastisphere' sits at the intersection of art and science. The work will be displayed 25-28 February, 4pm-9pm, in The Long Room at Treasury 1860.

"Plastisphere is an art installation that you can't do justice to with images alone" Weekend Notes.

"Laura's incredible writing has managed to translate something ugly into something beautiful" Farrago.
