Haunting and beautifully delivered [...] with extraordinary purpose and aplomb. The deeply moving JUPITER delivers its message in an insightful and powerful evening, and beyond."
- RAY MORGOVAN, OffOffOnline
"Unlike most climate change-related art, JUPITER doesn't fall strictly on the alarmist side of the argument about the state of our planet. Rather, we are left with [...] a renewed optimism."
"JUPITER's goal is not to provide an ultimate answer, but to start a dialogue. It succeeds."

Before retreating to the planet Jupiter, a young tycoon overhauls the entire energy system on Earth. His imposed vision promises to halt climate change, but demands costly sacrifices from all citizens of the world. A trio inspired by Frankenstein and energy policy, JUPITER is a 200-year-long dialogue between Jove and the representation of Humanity.
A collaboration with environmental policy experts, economists, psychologists, and innovative designers, JUPITER asks if we should impose radical societal change for the greater good.
Designed by David Bengali, Anshuman Bhatia, Eva von Schweinitz, & Angela Harner
