Fictional Desalination Plant
In the first exhibit visitors were welcomed onto the projected viewing deck of an offshore bio-desalination plant in Dubai. 360° video projections took them on an immersive journey underwater to see how the facility provides a local means of filtering saltwater into clean drinking water using natural processes. This freshwater factory combines the genes of a jellyfish (a highly absorptive natural material) with mangrove roots (one of nature's best desalinators). In this future scenario, Dubai has become a global pioneer in biomimicry and exports these bio-desalination plants across the world, making fresh water accessible to everyone.
