MANILA -- Mind Museum, the country's world-class science center, marks its second year with a speculative design exhibit that examines how climate change will define the way we live.

Set to begin on April 25, the exhibit titled "The Apocalypse Project --Imagined Futures" is the brainchild of Manila-based artist Catherine Sarah Young.

It is comprised of five exhibit stations that aims to show visitors what the world stands to lose -- fresh air and dry land -- and what it stands to gain due to climate change.

"I want us all to think about our relationship with the planet and make better choices. There are many ways by which we can catalyze discussion and take action about these issues. These projects are my own way of doing that," Young wrote on her blog.

Her collection of clothing designs from her previous exhibit in Singapore ranges from a dress meant to reflect heat from the atmosphere to an inflatable tutu as a way to survive flooding.

In the Manila run, the Apocalypse Project will focus on exploration through the senses such as smell with various interactive and participatory art.

The exhibit, which will have a limited run, will be held at the Technology Gallery of the Mind Museum at the Bonifacio Global City.

For the kids

Also for the month of April, children can explore a few creative endeavors through summer programs being offered by the Mind Museum.

Those interested can choose to gather and analyze evidence from a crime scene, experiment in a lab with other aspiring scientists, or explore the coral reefs of Anilao, Batangas.
