Welcome to 2071. Built to transform the very perception of the future as we know it, the Museum of the Future is home to immersive future environments that position visitors in an empowering version of the tomorrow. By meaningfully merging aspects of science, technology and spirituality, the Museum inspires humanity to re-imagine the future and all its possibilities. For the Museum, Certain Measures imagined an Observatory for planetary ecology in 2071. This new space consisted of the Geoscope and the Nursery.

The Geoscope is a global monitoring system that visualizes the progress of bespoke species after they have been deployed to aid threatened biomes. Through immersive projection mapping the Geoscope offers a trans-scalar view of the planet from global to microscopic, while weaving a web of interconnections among the physical specimens of the speculative species repopulating the planet. A benevolent artificial intelligence and network of human scientists and bionic droids carefully tend to the regeneration of the planet and report on their efforts to bring the world back from the brink.

This is one half of our Observatory exhibit for the Museum of the Future. For the other half, check out the Nursery.
