Recognising the need to transform the conversation surrounding sustainability and the climate emergency, in collaboration with environmental and political writer and activist George Monbiot, award-winning London-based creative innovation studio, Holition has created an immersive installation within The Barbican Centre's Our Time on Earth Exhibition in May 2022 – a major showcase celebrating the power of global creativity to transform the conversation around the climate emergency.



Our Time on Earth presents 18 works, including 12 new commissions, from 12 countries around the world to create a series of innovative new collaborations. Bringing together academics, architects, artists, activists, designers, ecologists, engineers, environmental campaigners, researchers, scientists, technologists and writers, the exhibition highlights the need to work in collaboration across disciplines to tackle climate change.



Drawing on research from George Monbiot’s forthcoming book Regenesis: Feeding the World Without Devouring the Planet, Holition's immersive exhibition, The World Beneath Our Feet, takes individuals through an immersive journey that tells the incredible story of the hidden beauty and complexity of the living systems beneath our feet.



The World Beneath Our Feet is an exhibition that allows visitors to peer into the complexities of soil, leaving a memorable experience that impacts people's perception of this critical living system to trigger meaningful conversations surrounding its importance in the world.



Harnessing creative data visualisation technologies, the immersive experience highlights the fascinating, yet complex systems found in soil - the bedrock for biodiversity and human life.



"There is more scientific evidence than ever demonstrating the amplitude of the climate emergency. And science is essential – there’s no doubt about that. But art, design and culture have the power to move us, and creative propositions of the sort we have gathered within Our Time on Earth aim to seduce the visitor into another way of seeing – another way of being. They invite us to listen, to feel, to really see, what it could be like to live and thrive in an alternative and positive future”. - Kate Franklin & Caroline Till, Guest Curators
