On the road to Tribeca 2022

“Mushroom Cloud is a project focused on accountability; one that values sharing and conserving resources, and strengthening networked systems through participation, communication, and advocacy.– Nancy Baker Cahill

The Mushroom Cloud NYC / RISE AR experience by artist Nancy Baker Cahill is a call for climate change action. The project acknowledges the impending crisis while offering hope that, through cooperative and constructive measures, a vibrant future can still be possible.

During the Tribeca Festival, a custom, geo-located edition of this experience will be available to show audiences what a mushroom cloud explosion could be like, urging them to consider how we might model our collective survival on nature. The project is especially relevant to New York City – a city vulnerable to climate impacts given rising sea levels. Be sure to check out its world premiere on June 9.
