Site-specific Art Installation
Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise initiative, is the first zoo or aquarium in Canada to discontinue its sales of single-use plastic water bottles.
To kick-start this awareness campaign, the Ocean Wise Art Atrium was revitalized with a new art installation which depicts a scenario of a mega fauna (Humpback whale) swimming through waves of plastic bottles. The bottles represent the approximate number that were sold in the aquarium’s cafe just from September to November of 2016.
This provoking installation located outside of the Vancouver Aquarium visible to the public eye, is an attempt to inspire the viewer to join in saying no to single-use plastic.
