The Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth and one of its saltiest bodies of water.
It is shared by 3 nationalities: Israeli, Palestinian, & Jordanian, and is designated as a world wonder.
Over 160 billion gallons of water evaporates from it every year without being replenished.
This has led to an alarming increase in sinkholes limiting physical access to the Dead Sea.
Although there are plans to help the situation such as the Red Sea-Dead Sea conveyance project ($10B estimate). It is still a pipe dream with politics and industries playing in its way and uncertainty if it will ever materialise.
The Dead Sea Museum is a new type of Platform for Art Exhibitions in Virtual Reality .
Through commissioned digital artworks, the project aims to open new ways for contemporary artists to create and showcase original Digital Artworks.
Artists who, like us, want to bring attention to an ongoing yet reversible ecological disaster.
Divided in 3 section, the experience unfolds transporting its travellers in space but also in time.
From the sea level where they enter to the sea bed where they discover the fantastic digital sculpture park, time passes at a rapid rate around them.
So by the time they reach the Dead Sea Imaginarium, water has completely evaporated, leaving only a desolated out-worldly landscape.
Commissioned artists will create virtual objects for the Imaginarium which can be any scale, form, static or animated, solid or ephemeral, interactive or inaccessible.
Many of these physically unrealizable objects will find a home in a future that is surreal but all too plausible.
