Aftermath is an interactive VR experience which showcases the effect of rapid rising sea levels on coastal areas. The environment illustrates the impact of marine plastics as well as the mitigation and adaptation techniques used against rising sea levels, such as seawalls. Remnants of coastal communities, following their displacement and ultimate evacuation of their homes, are also portrayed. The premise is to make people aware of issues small island nations and coastal areas face as a consequence of climate change. This experience is an attempt at making viewers question their present behaviour and the impact it has on the future.
A 360 excerpt is provided below for an overview of the experience. Swipe or use your mouse, by clicking and dragging the video, to explore the environment. A google cardboard can also be used to a VR experience.
