NEXUS VR

As global population increases, the connections between water, food, energy and the environment at global and regional scales become even more important. The complexity and interconnectedness of these relationships challenge policy makers, scientists, businesses and citizens to find acceptable ways forward, but there are no easy solutions: water, food and energy systems are inextricably linked, and actions in one area often impact both the others. 

This is the “Nexus”, a concept developed to study the integrated impacts of human activities.

We chose to translate this complex thematic in an easy, entertaining experience tailored to the general public, using WebXR technology to make the work accessible to a wider audience.

Developed in collaboration with a team of researchers from Imperial College London, “NEXUS VR” is a WebXR interactive documentary that explores the connections between energy, food and water in our planet.

Its goal is to house an immersive, artistic and educational virtual world which offers users who may not otherwise engage with environmental sustainability issues the chance to navigate through its complexity and find their own passion and narrative.

The project will be a narrative-driven experience and it will feature real case studies around the world, each showcasing different activities that have utilised or exploited the relationship between water, energy and food for human development.
