The Future North Ecotarium
propaganda project is based on the
premise that within the next hundred
years our climate will be irreversible
altered. Massive migrations of urban
populations will need to move north to
escape severe flooding and
increased temperatures. Area inside
the Arctic regions will warm up
significantly, making their occupation
newly desirable. Real estate values
will shift to privilege northern climates
that formerly had almost no human
inhabitants. To underscore the
intensity of such a global shift, we
have moved entire cities. The reality of
hundreds of millions of people
relocating their respective centers of
culture, business, and life is almost
incomprehensible. We anticipate this
polemical representation will impact
our perception of tomorrow.
