Descripción de proyecto
Near the statue of Jan Van Eyck, Skyscraper (the Bruges Whale) rises up from the Bruges canals as part of the 2018 Bruges Triennial. The gigantic sculpture designed by Brooklyn-based architecture and design firm StudioKCA is more than just a representation of a whale; the animal is made of waste, collected from the plastic soup that floats on the seas and oceans of the world.
Working with volunteers from the Hawaii Wildlife Fund and the Surfrider Foundation, StudioKCA combed the beaches of Hawaii to gather up the waste. The installation was built out of those finds. StudioKCA seeks this way to draw attention to the universal problem of pollution that affects us all, and to make viewers aware that individual action is necessary.
