Description

In “Now or Never”, Studio Hik was inspired by
novels that predict ecological collapse, and how fictional storytelling has the power to change the way we think and feel about crises in the real world. Quoting passages from Albert Einstein and sci-fi author J.G. Ballard, their message is like the Earth: partially obscured by melting and drought. 

“These climate changes are already in effect in our daily lives, and won’t wait for us
any longer” - Studio Hik.

As part of the Helsinki Biennial Inspired programme, Facebook Open Arts has commissioned Seoul-based design Studio Hik to create AR motion graphics that spark critical conversations about climate change. The Biennial’s commitment to sustainability offers an inspiring example for the global creative community, mirroring Facebook’s own commitment to zero emissions in its global operations.
