Eyes On The Sky

We are developing Eyes on the Sky as a Mixed Reality experience designed to bring space environmentalism education alive. Our goal is to move a minimum of 10k people a year through this experience and use immersion to foster attitude and behavioral change. We hope to spark a shared understanding of space environmentalism and our role in the element common to us all: our sky! The 20-minute immersive story allows for 8 people to actively engage in the immersive SkyDome experience as it moves through multiple worlds. The audience will participate in the story via a traveling immersive exhibition. This Mixed Reality experience combines both physical and digital assets and spaces to make the story world come alive. The goal is to create a United Nations Sustainability goal to protect our skies.
