The NDD Clinic (@NDDClinic) is a specialist clinic from the future that examines and treats Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD).
In the year 2067, the concept of open and free access to nature in the urban environment ceases to exist. Climate change is now an omnipresent danger leaving no city dweller unscathed; being diagnosed with Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD) is only a matter of time.
This futuristic intervention unveils how our relationship with the natural world is changing. The space is an interactive choreography of visual, lighting and sound elements to bring the 2067 plot to life. Visitors are “patients” who experience the various multisensory elements as they navigate through the installation.
The intervention is being designed and executed by a team of futurists: Bergur Ebbi, Jennifer McDougall, Nourhan Hegazy and Prateeksha Singh.
