Unmoored explores a potential future where global warming has gone unchecked – and through mixed reality guests will experience an unprecedented phenomena in the heart of Times Square. Developed in collaboration with Microsoft, Unmoored allows guests to explore this surrealistic spectacle, creating an experience that blends the physical world with the digital world.

With Wake and Unmoored, artist Mel Chin hopes to spark deeper personal investigations through digital devices, and provoke an enlightened stewardship of human actions in relation to global warming realities.

The two public artworks immerse the heart of Times Square in the discussion around climate change. Scenarios on the ground at Broadway Plaza between 46th and 47th Streets, and in the “virtual air” of mixed reality, will combine in an ambitious, interactive installation.
