A new interactive exhibition, Connected Worlds, at the New York Hall of Science, USA, has been devised to encourage the public to consider the effect of their actions on the state and sustainability of the global environment.

Conceived in collaboration with creative studio Design I/O and conceptual artist and game designer Zach Gage, the installation comprises six eco-systems including a jungle, desert and reservoir, depicted on an interactive videowall spread out across the Great Hall at the centre. Each area has its own biological eco-system and shares a common supply of water, in the form of an 11.6m (38ft) high projected waterfall, that flows out into the interactive floor space spanning 701sq m (2,300sq ft).

The project invites visitors to explore the different digital locations, with the aim of maintaining a balanced environment, while considering how their individual and collective actions can have universal and longitudinal impact on the interconnected eco-systems.
