an Extended Reality Experience

scroll

Join ARTECHOUSE and the United Nations Foundation for Voice Our Future, an unprecedented, extended reality (XR) experience inspired by the UN75 initiative to crowdsource priorities and solutions for a refreshed vision of the future. 

 

Voice Our Future augments your environment to take you through “Then,” “Now” and “Next” - a series of interactive yet reflective journeys that invite you to learn from the past, deepen your understanding of the present, and ultimately empower you to add your unique voice to the dialogue for the future we all want.


In this time of isolation and uncertainty, Voice Our Future connects us all by transforming individual messages into an ever-evolving, collective new world. Take a moment to pause, reflect and add your unique voice to the global conversation.

** Voice Our Future will be available on the ARTECHOUSE app on June 26th.

THEN: The Lessons We’ve Learned:

 

Television has been the most impactful invention of the 20th century in terms of dissemination of information and news, and global discourse. The “THEN” portion uses this fact as an anchor to summon a multitude of television sets where one can spend time reflecting on some of the key messages and lessons from the past around topics of peace, progress, solidarity and global partnership. Quotes from leaders like Eleanor Roosevelt, Kofi Annan, Malala Youzafsai and Greta Thunberg are featured in this segment.

 

NOW:  The Voice Within You:


The segment dedicated to the present uses the most defining technologies of today to shift the story toward the user. Internet and mobile technologies, AI and facial recognition are all highlighted as the camera is now turned to the user, and his/her/their face will become a palette for a narrative art activation that will help the user find their voice. 

NEXT: Voice The Future We All Want:

Utilizing natural language processing (NLP) the user can experience how one’s voice can make an impact by adding his/her/their own message to help grow “the future we want”. As the user is invited to plant the seeds of the future with their own voice, a forest grows, creating a message-generated ecosystem imagined in seventeen colors to correspond to UN’s seventeen Sustainable Development Goals.

** Voice Our Future will be available on the ARTECHOUSE app on June 26th.

Users can further the reach of their voices by completing the UN75 survey, helping to inform the UN’s thinking and priorities. Reflections from both the app and the survey will contribute to a truly global picture of a world where we all thrive.
