Love Nature 4K Exhibition lets public come face-to-face with sights and sounds of most endangered animals
Renowned digital artist Kelly Richardson has created a new, hyper-real exhibition that puts the public face-to-face with the world’s most endangered animals. The immersive and provocative installation highlights the plight of those animals as most at risk of being lost in a generation.
The free ‘Closer to Nature’ public exhibition, commissioned by LOVE NATURE a new ‘Netflix for nature lovers’ on-demand wildlife channel celebrates the beauty of these near-extinct animals. Using 4K (Ultra-HD) content, the installation transports viewers via sight and sound into their natural environment in an experience that is as close to nature as physically being there in person.
As well as stunning footage of the ten endangered animals, viewers can experience a poignant one-minute ‘animal’ silence as one-by-one each animal disappears from its landscape (and screen), giving a glimpse into a future world where these creatures and their distinctive sounds no longer exist.
The 10 most endangered animals featured in the exhibition are all listed as priority species by WWF International:
- Polar Bear
- White Rhino
- Asian fresh water turtle
- African Elephant
- Snow Leopard
- Red Panda
- Reef Shark
Kelly Richardson, artist, comments: “Being given access to such rich, 4K wildlife footage has enabled me to create a truly immersive and provocative piece of work, that transports the viewer closer to nature and forces them to confront the threat these incredible animals face. It is so important we do everything we can to raise awareness of their plight and protect natural environments so endangered animals like these do not become lost forever.”
Jo Parkinson, MD of LOVE NATURE comments: “We are on a mission to bring audiences closer to the beauty and wonder of the natural world, sharing awe-inspiring stories and shining a light on the fight for survival in ever-changing environments. This exhibition is a stunning and powerful way to remind people why it’s so important we all do our bit towards protecting the planet.”
