Connected Worlds immerses visitors in a fantastical animated world where your actions — gestures, movements, and decisions — impact how well the world is kept in balance.

There are six environments in Connected Worlds: jungle, desert, wetlands, mountain valley, reservoir, and plains. Each has its own trees, plants, and animals, but they share a common supply of water. The environments are fed by a central waterfall that is projected 38-ft high in the exhibitions and flows out across an interactive floor that spans 2,300 square feet. While interacting with Connected Worlds, visitors explore the interconnectedness of different environments, strategize to keep systems in balance, and experience how individual and collective actions can have widespread impact.

As visitors explore and play, their actions — gestures, movements, decisions — have both short and long-term effects on the digital environments. These effects are based on core concepts of sustainability science including feedback loops, equilibrium in a dynamic environment, and casual links and influences.

The exhibition’s simulated environments were created by Design I/O. The continuously changing experiences are driven by gesture-sensing and location-tracking technologies as well as global, environmental and social databases.
