Thin ice vr

In 1914, in one of the last great expeditions of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration, Sir Ernest Shackleton set out on one of the era’s most ambitious and harrowing journeys: to cross Antarctica coast-to-coast. 

Over a century on, environmental scientist Tim Jarvis AM, and award winning studio, Monkeystack, have recreated Shackleton’s epic, tragic feat of endurance in an immersive virtual reality experience.

 

As we join Jarvis in following Shackleton’s footsteps, we too bear witness to another new and heartbreaking narrative: the icy environment that Shackleton and his peers once explored has now been transformed by the effects of anthropogenic climate change.

Equal parts catastrophic and transcendent, Thin Ice VR presents a uniquely affecting account of how humanity asserts its will over the extremes of nature — often in unforeseen ways.
