‘Midway Collide-O-Scope’ Exhibition
4 Aug – 7 Oct 2022
Plastic contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions and is a non-degradable toxic pollutant. It is being produced at a rate far exceeding we can properly deal with it. This leads to scientists’ prediction that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
Presented by the CUHK Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change and Rare Animals Really Endangered, in collaboration with 5 Gyres Institute, National Museum of Marine Science and Technology and Plastic Free Seas, the ’Midway Collide-O-Scope’ is a collection of artworks made from marine plastic debris and records of the artists’ life-changing expedition in their quest for plastic pollution truth. Through ‘the power of art’, this exhibition aims to arouse the public’s curiosity and awareness on global plastic problems, and to inspire positive behavioural change.
Find out why Midway Island in the Pacific matters, how it relates to the global issue of marine plastic pollution and the artists’ ‘plastic vision’.
