News From The Planet

The artist Rachel Jacobs who created the Future Machine is working with climate scientist Dr John King to create the future quests that are printed by the Future Machine. These are informed by the latest news from the planet captured over the last three months.

When you receive your personalised ‘Future Quest’ from the future machine, you will receive a story about the planet – the story that appears will depend on where you turned the dial (either on the actual Future Machine or using the Future Machine mobile app) that has the options for global, local, Arctic, Antarctic on it.

These news stories about the current state of planet Earth are based on the latest news and scientific climate data interpreted by Dr John King (Senior Scientist, British Antarctic Survey) in collaboration with artist/researcher Dr Rachel Jacobs.

More coming soon…
