and major brands like Microsoft and Spotify, among others.For Undercurrent’s first project, Volker and Milton sought out artists who were not only interested in new vehicles for creative expression but had taken on climate change as a pet cause. After signing on to the project, each artist got to work with the Undercurrent team on creating installations which would serve to illuminate the issue in their own unique ways. The installation created by Miguel, for example, is described as an interactive way to experience the destruction of the coral reef; it will include an original music composition designed to be reactive to each individual who enters the space. Bon Iver’s, meanwhile, will feature a"re-composition" of one of the singer’s existing songs and is described by Volker as"an audio-video meditation on the climate crisis, but in a more abstract way."

Once admitted inside, guests will have the ability to explore all of the installations at will."Think about it as kind of like a museum art gallery meets music festival," says Milton, while Volker describes it as"a kind of playground approach," adding that they were partially inspired by the areas of music festivals"where the stages aren’t playing, where there’s a lot of stuff going on that you can go and interact with." Like a music festival, there will also be"sustainable" food and beverage options living alongside the various installations. (A publicist for the event notes that due to the nature of the indoor space, any COVID-19 restrictions still in existence at that time will be followed to ensure the safety of all guests.)

Aside from showcasing Undercurrent’s work, the goal of the fall event is to inspire attendees to think more deeply about the climate crisis while donating money to its non-profit partners (Undercurrent is making direct donations to the organizations, while guests will be given multiple opportunities to donate on-site). Long-term, Milton and Volker hope to use it as a launching pad for future exhibitions with a focus on other important causes. “There are so many different ways that we could evolve this,” Milton says.
