Find workshops, films and exhibits surrounding the topic of sustainability

A pertinent and frequently-discussed subject these days, climate change, is having its own month-long showcase at the ArtScience Museum from now till Nov 3. Highlighting the impact of global warming on the oceans and polar regions of the world through a series of exhibitions, workshops and performances is Climate S.O.S, Season of Sustainability.

First, find Changing Course 2019: An exploration of climate crisis, developed by the museum together with Singapore-based, sustainable development media organisation Eco-Business. A multimedia exhibition showcasing photographs examining climate change and who it affects, the gallery will also feature a virtual reality experience that was shot on location in Singapore and the Arctic.

A special edition of ArtScience Late can also be caught on Oct 17, as Singaporean artist Inch Chua will provide a performance inspired by her expedition to Antarctica, that combines original compositions, radio play and field recordings.

One that can be checked out online is the digital commission, CleanSeas AR, a fun, interactive augmented reality experience that creates awareness about sea pollution by having users transform a virtual sea of plastic ocean creatures into healthy, regular sea animals by pledging to beat plastic pollution and achieve clean seas for future generations.

This will also be accompanied by an interactive workshop facilitated by the same team who created CleanSeas AR, creative tech studio MeshMinds. At Everyone Can Create: Clean Seas, visitors can use digital photography, drawings, videos and more to express ideas and create marine creatures using physical objects as well as an augmented reality application.

And before you depart the museum, be sure to make a pledge to do your part for Earth and leave it on the wall outside the Changing Course exhibition. With so many green initiatives like these happening this year, you won’t have an excuse to ignore this issue plaguing our planet.
