Bays Of Our World @ Museum of Tomorrow
Bringing awareness to sustainability, the Museum of Tomorrow launched the permanent exhibition “Bays Of Our World”, with interactive experiences created by SuperUber, about 5 different bays around the world.
The beauty of the bay that received the first Portuguese when they disembarked in Rio de Janeiro in 1502 has caused astonishment ever since. But the bay suffered sedimentation, sewage, and oil leaks in the last hundred years.
In addition to the Guanabara Bay, visitors navigate through four other bays – the Chesapeake Bay in the United States, the Jakarta Bay in Indonesia, the Tokyo Bay in Japan, and the Bay of Sydney in Australia. The exhibition is divided into the characteristics, the occupation timeline, animals and plants, as well as the challenges and solutions for each bay, such as de-pollution projects. In “Scenarios for Tomorrow”, visitors make choices to help clean up each of the five bays.
In the Guiana Dolphin Game, the goal is to help the dolphins survive. Currently there is a family of 39 dolphins in the Guanabara Bay – previously there were more than 1,000 – that need to deal with 18,000 liters of sewage being deposited per second. The dolphin must overcome obstacles, divert waste, sewage pipes, nets, and fishing vessels. After every third life lost, information and solutions appear on the screen.
The exhibition also features the “Bay Mural”, a large screen made up of constantly updated photos sent in by the public to denounce pollution sites in various parts of the world. Images are updated every 24 hours and displayed with captions and the names of the photographers.
