Thoughts From the Artists





1

"In the coming years, we hope to encourage a new generation of artists and curators to engage more people with the urgent ecological challenges we face globally. We believe that the arts can effect change in ways that complement the work of conventional education and science."

Clive Adams

2

Sustainability is irrevocably tied to an obsession with “The Future.” This is a poignant concern in a city / country like Singapore, where 5-and-a-bit million people occupy an island, and must anticipate the future of a growing population within a finite space.

Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett

The immense scale of our consumption can appear desolate, macabre, oddly comical and ironic, and even darkly beautiful; for me its consistent feature is a staggering complexity.

Chris Jordan

4

We were looking to demonstrate, in a poetic manner, the amount of plastic waste that is consumed daily.

Luzinterruptus

5

The artist, like the scientist, has a crucial role to perform in our society: see things differently, act on this vision, report the failures and successes.

John Sabraw

6

Rachel Sussman
