38-Foot-Tall Whale Was Made Of 10,000 Pounds of Plastic Waste Found In The Ocean As A Way To Raise Awareness

In the context of the 2018 Bruges Triennial, architecture and design firm StudioKCA, based in Brooklyn, designed a 38-foot-tall sculptural whale made of more than five tons of plastic found in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.


StudioKCA along with volunteers from the Hawaii Wildlife Fund and the Surfrider Foundation, combed the beaches of Hawaii to gather up the waste. The installation was built out of these finds. StudioKCA aims to raise awareness regarding the universal problem of pollution which affects us all and to inform viewers that individual action is necessary.


“Right now there is 150 million tons of plastic swimming in the ocean, our oceans, the oceans we share,” said Klimoski in the video above. “Pound for pound that is more plastic waste swimming in the ocean than there is whales. So an opportunity like this to show the type of plastic and the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans is really important.”


You can learn more about the process behind the large-scale whale on the team's website and in the video below. The Bruges Triennial continues until September 16, 2018.

  1. I hope there will be more project like this. Plastic could be an inspiration.

  2. My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
    My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realised the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via [email protected] did for me.
    Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
    Remain blessed.
