Studio KCA’s Skyscraper (the Bruges Whale) for the Bruges Triennial #ArtTuesday

We’re really into this powerful piece from Studio KCA – the piece feels like it could topple at any moment and completely engulf the viewers below. From Studio KCA:

5 tons of plastic waste pulled out of the Pacific Ocean, turned into a 4 story tall whale for the 2018 Bruges Triennial – a reminder of the 150,000,000 tons of plastic waste still swimming in our waters

The organizers of the 2018 Bruges Triennial, approached us to create an artpiece interpreting the idea of the “liquid city”, a concept that defines the city as an ever changing set of consumer transactions, whose identity is in flux as cities grow more and more connected through globalization.

Our first thought led us to thinking about the biggest liquid city on the planet (the ocean), how it connects us all, and how the waste produced and consumed in our cities, specifically plastic waste, ends up in the ocean.
