SwampScapes Elizabeth Miller, Juan Carlos Zaldivar, Kim Grinfeder

Films index A to Z

SwampScapes is a virtual reality experience built around footage captured deep in the Everglades, featuring several experts in the region and its remarkable biodiversity. Over the superb 360° images, we hear voices celebrating the exceptional ecosystem and warning against human impacts on the important but delicate environment. “What we see is only the skeleton of what the Everglades used to be,” says Betty, a Miccosukee activist. Designed as a sensory and educational exploration, SwampScapes uses virtual reality to highlight environmental issues and encourage us to think about the connections between ecology and culture.
