Living Objects: A Digital Forest Exhibition

A digital forest installation that explores the connections between technology and climate change

In collaboration with Identity 2.0
Featuring a guided tour of an interactive digital forest

“Even though every schoolchild knows trees are living beings, they also know they are categorised as objects” - Peter Wohlleben, Author

Wander into Living Objects - a digital forest exhibition exploring the connections between technology and climate change, and the lessons we can learn from the oldest storytellers in our world - trees.

Prepare to embark on a guided virtual journey, discovering the ways trees support and work together to protect their communities. Inspired by the work of young climate activists, past movements and the grassroots organisations at the forefront of climate action, this interactive exhibition - created by Identity 2.0 - exists as a digital representation of our fight for the future. Launching on 15 April and accessible throughout the festival, join us by signing up below.

Do they really want to know how we feel?

Climate anxiety and solastalgia are establishing themselves as new terms in psychology. This emotionality is becoming more and more palpable within the climate debate, but without receiving sufficient recognition. The immersive installation by photographer Frederick Herrmann aims to make this condition of the so-called Gen Z tangible.



There’s the obvious power that exists in physical strength, large size, machinery and weapons.
