See images on a scale that cannot be captured by the human senses on a giant high-definition screen.
See life intuitively through a stunning visual experience.
MMX Special Exhibition
Share the experience of the MMX spacecraft's journey in search of life by viewing high-resolution images of Mars and its moon Phobos, sent today by the MMX spacecraft, on a giant screen.
Plant and Flower Decomposition
Experience the growth of other life forms, such as microorganisms and fungi, as organisms die and decompose, using real objects and time-lapse video.
Immersive Experience Area
Multilayer Projection Exhibition
The connections between the different lives and the fractal similarities that transcend the scale are experienced in a three-dimensional, symbolic and experiential way in an organic space with several layers of transparent screens.
The experience of the interconnectedness of all life, including water and atmospheric cycles, the food chain and the chain of life, is expressed through MR/VR.
From human-centred to life-centred. Feel the wonder of living together here and now.
Journey of life － Mars I Phobos
The MMX Rover, which is on its way to the distant Martian satellite Phobos to unlock the mystery of life on Earth, is expected to reach Mars in time for the exhibition.
Realistic, high-resolution images of Mars sent by the rover are displayed on a giant screen, allowing visitors to experience the world as the MMX rover sees it now.
The screen will also show the tiny Earth as seen from the vicinity of Mars.
We hope you will feel how small our planet is in this universe and how wonderful the life we share together on it is.
A variety of content will be projected onto a 4.8m wall.
The content will be accompanied by a narrative providing background to the project
and an experience of where MMX is today.
Why MMX travels to Mars
- Video explaining why to look into Phobos
- Video explaining the specific steps of the touchdown procedure
The world as seen by MMX
- Time-lapse video clips leading up to the latest live and simulation images
*Reproduction of the current situation in the programme
Where MMX is
- Visual representation of the entire journey and current position
*Reproduction of the current position and other information in the programme.
Immersive Experience Area
LIVE EARTH JOURNEY
The water and atmospheric cycles,
the food chain and the chains of life
are all represented using MR/VR.
We try to make people aware of the interconnectedness of all life,
and to shift their senses from people-centred to life-centred.
We want to communicate the wonder of living together in the here and now, while encouraging a shift in consciousness that ecological issues are not someone else's business, but our own.
Participants sit in a circle and wear a head-mounted display with a camera that allows them to see outside.
The project interweaves MR, where all participants experience the same phenomenon, such as seeing a whale that appears in the centre of the theatre, with VR, where they experience the dynamics of life individually, to present an adventure story about life that can only be experienced here.
