An epic performance art installation that embodies the trauma of flooding, explores our troubled relationship to water, and contemplates our capacity for empathy, adaptation, and long-term thinking.

The brain-child of arts visionary and Senior TED Fellow Lars Jan, the centerpiece of HOLOSCENES is a publicly displayed, elevator-sized human aquarium inhabited by performers conducting everyday behaviors (making the bed, playing a guitar, cleaning the house) while it’s constantly filled and drained by a custom hydraulic water system. The spectacular project weaves the unraveling story of the rising seas, melting glaciers, intensifying floods and droughts—into the patterns of the everyday. According to Jan, the provocative and visceral work is made to “make people feel climate change in their gut, rather than just understand it.”

Produced by MAPP International Productions in partnership with Early Morning Opera.
