Today Camp Century is just a memory, it was lost to the ice decades ago.
But Camp Century's legacy is still alive today. That is why, we have rebuilt part of it in virtual reality, and invite you to explore it.
"We spoke to people like Søren Gregersen, who lived at Camp Century as a boy-scout. Kristian Nielsen, who has published books about Camp Century. And William Colgan, who returned to Camp Century in 2017 as part of the on-going research to measure the environmental impact the debris that remains could have, if the snow melts.”
Camp Century VR is in the official selection at the Copenhagen Film Festival in April 2021. This VR documentary is a roomscale virtual reality experience, which you can explore alone or together in a group. It allows you to revisit the base, recreated in high-detail virtual reality, according to historical documents, photos and video.
You are free to wander through Camp Century at your own speed. Follow the intertwining threads of high-level geopolitics, scientific research, daily life beneath the ice, and the specter of long-buried environmental problems that are inevitably going resurfacing, as the Greenland ice cap rapidly melts due to climate change.
