The online interactive program of InScience 2020
One of the most worrisome and urgent problems of our time is climate change. In the interactive program ‘Do You Know the Way to Utopia?‘ our concerns, dreams, fears and hopes about this crisis are made palpable. In collaboration with various Nijmegen museums and galleries, interactive installations, games and VR experiences were realized that gave you the opportunity to discover an ecological utopia. Unfortunately, to prevent dystopia, this program has been canceled. However, you can still participate in the curious online interactives of InScience 2020 to get an idea of what this utopia would have looked like!

You are walking through a seemingly ordinary city, but it sounds different. The noises caused by fossil resources have been removed. This gives you a surprisingly unnatural experience and makes you aware of what the city of the future may sound like. Originally intended as an interactive installation, this project has now been converted into a radio play on which you can share your own experience.

A walk through the Earthly Paradise sounds attractive. Who wouldn’t want to walk through a perfect, pure natural environment? In this interactive installation you can briefly tour the Garden of Eden, but beware: the presence of humans can easily disturb the natural balance. Because corona makes it impossible to bring this installation live to the visitor, the makers demonstrate it online and talk about their inspiration.
