In partnership with the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Weinberg/Newton Gallery presents a unique virtual reality experience by Ellen Sandor and (art)n artists Diana Torres, Azadeh Gholizadeh, and Chris Kemp. This VR was inspired by Martyl and produced in collaboration with Carolina Cruz-Neira and The Emerging Analytic Center at University of Arkansas at Little Rock. It Is two minutes to midnight highlights recent heightened threats of nuclear warfare, growing tensions between nations, and climate change alongside scientific discoveries, like CRISPR genomic editing, that could improve healthcare and have other applications.
