XR Session 2 - Aftermath_ A VR Visualization of Climate Change Impact

Aftermath is a virtual reality experience investigating the flow-on effects of climate change. Set in a distant future, the setting for the VR experience takes you on a journey along the coastal region of Mauritius Island, showcasing the damaging consequences of sea-level rise. Even though mitigation and adaptation techniques were employed, like sea walls and use of mangroves, these have been made futile over time.

This trip in the future has been created to raise awareness [as well as challenging the way we think] of the devastating nature of climate change on vulnerable regions: displacing habitation and altering the way we live.
