Feature: The Apocalypse Project

Are you ready to become a defender of the future?
What are disappearing because of climate change? How do we adapt?
How can we train ourselves to think deeper about the future of the planet?

The Mind Museum opens a special exhibition that will make you think about your relationship with the planet on April 25, Friday. 
The Apocalypse Project: Imagined Futures is a speculative design exhibition that explores possible lifestyles as climate change continues to affect the planet. It aims to empower the public to embrace climate change as a personal challenge through the following exhibit areas:

T.E.M.P.S (The Ephemeral Marvels Perfume Store) presents: The Smell Bar of Vanishing Scents
Climate Change Couture: Volume 2, Manila
The Fadelist: Tracks of Endangered Sounds
The Climatoscope: Futurescapes of Planet Earth
The Planetary Poetry Board

If you are available on opening day tomorrow, April 25, do join them for a special MISSION APOCALYPSE activity. To further enhance the exhibition experience, guests with tickets can go on a scavenger hunt mission throughout the museum’s exhibits. The first 500 participants to complete all tasks of the mission get an Apocalypse Badge as Commander of the Apocalypse, defender of the future.

THE APOCALYPSE PROJECT

The Apocalypse Project is a speculative design research inquiry that explores our possible lifestyles as climate change continues to affect the planet. It is a creative platform that asks specific questions about our environmental futures. 

This project is authored by artist Catherine Sarah Young. She began this as part of the 2013 Art Science Residency Programme in partnership with the ArtScience Museum™ at Marina Bay Sands, Tembusu College National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Singapore-ETH Centre’s Future Cities Laboratory. She is currently in Manila as the artist-in-residence of The Mind Museum expanding the project. Do get in touch if you'd like to collaborate!
