A sculpture made from recovered ocean plastic waste and steel support, “Skyscraper” (The Bruges Whale) has begun its Asian Migration Tour in collaboration with Ocean Recovery Alliance, starting in Singapore at the ArtScience Museum of Marina Bay Sands. Designed by Jason Klimoski and Lesley Chang from New York’s StudioKCA, the 4-storey tall piece was inspired by the “liquid city” of the ocean and was created for the 2018 Bruges Triennial using over 5 tonnes of plastic waste collected by the Hawaii Wildlife Fund. The aim of the Asian tour installation, titled “Have we breached the limit?” is to show the severity of the ocean plastic crisis, and motivate change in our everyday consumption habits.
