Description

My thesis is an immersive speculative experience that confronts the implications of both sea-level rise due to climate change and our over-reliance on advanced technologies like artificial intelligence to create solutions for climate change. The purpose of this project is to highlight the drastic impacts of rising sea levels in the near future and communicate the importance of ethical use of technology, while raising awareness of our over-dependence on artificial intelligence to solve climate problems- the problem to which, ironically, it is one of the biggest contributors. 'Moving towards the dream, are we?' points at the irony of the dream of progressing in every field with technological advancement. Whilst in reality, the emissions from these sources are actually adding to the severity of the global crisis in a way that may actually be advancing us more rapidly towards mass extinction and loss due to climate change impacts.
