Climate: S.O.S – Season of Sustainability

ArtScience Museum is proud to present Climate S.O.S – Season of Sustainability, a seasonal focus on the impact of climate change on our oceanic environments. This special showcase forges new connections between our habits as consumers in Asia and the impact on climates in the Arctics, and gives immediate and profound calls-to-action that we can all be a part of through a series of programmes.

Skyscraper (The Bruges Whale)

From 7 Nov – 19 Dec

"Skyscraper" (The Bruges Whale) is an 11-meters tall sculpture made from recycled ocean plastic, designed by award-winning architects and designers Jason Klimoski and Lesley Chang from the acclaimed StudioKCA in New York.

The plastic waste used in the sculpture – ranging from hangers and kitchen bowls to toilet seats and car bumpers – was amongst 5 tons of waste pulled from the Pacific Ocean in 2018. Shaped into the iconic Skyscraper, it is now serving as a stark visual reminder of the 150 million tons of plastic polluting our waters. With an estimated 8 million tons added every year, pound for pound, there is more plastic waste in the ocean than there are whales.

Skyscraper is a part of the Climate: S.O.S Season of Sustainability at ArtScience Museum. The installation was originally positioned in the Jan Van Eyck Plein canal during the 2018 Bruges Triennial and has been brought to Singapore by Ocean Recovery Alliance as the first stop of its Asia Pacific tour.
