World Environment Day Art Installation At VR Bengaluru

World Environment Day is the UN’s most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.

I’ve been commissioned by VR Bengaluru to conceptualise an interactive art installation titled ‘Beware Of The Plastics’ on the occasion of World Environment Day. This Interactive Art Installation will be on view from Saturday 2 June, 2018 to 5 June, 2018. I’m a big proponent of reduce, reuse and recycle so this installation is very close to my heart. We only have one planet, one that we have borrowed from our children and while art helps to beautify it, we all have to protect it, help reduce our environmental impact.

MY ART INSTALLATION DEPICTS DATA ABOUT PLASTIC POLLUTION AND KEY DOS AND DONTS. VIEWERS CAN WRITE THEIR OWN ENVIRONMENT DAY MESSAGES TOO. THE INSTALLATION IS VISUALLY STRIKING WHILE ALSO DELIVERING A STRONG ENVIRONMENTAL MESSAGE.

BEAT PLASTIC POLLUTION
“Beat Plastic Pollution”, the theme for World Environment Day 2018, is a call to action for all of
us to come together to combat one of the great environmental challenges of our time. The theme invites us all to consider how we can make changes in our everyday lives to reduce the heavy burden of plastic pollution on our natural places, our wildlife – and our own health. While plastic has many valuable uses, we have become over reliant on single-use or disposable plastic – with severe environmental consequences. This World Environment Day let us engage partners from all corners of society and the world to join us in raising awareness and inspiring action to form the global movement needed to beat plastic pollution for good.

Global Plastic Pollution by the Numbers:
• 5 trillion plastic bags used each year
• 13 million tonnes of plastic leak into the ocean each year
• 17 million barrels of oil used on plastic production each year
• 1 million plastic bottles bought every minute
• 100,000 marine animals killed by plastics each year
• 100 years for plastic to degrade in the environment
• 90% of bottled water found to contain plastic particles
• 83% of tap water found to contain particles
• 50% of consumer plastics are single use
• 10% of all human-generated waste is plastic

Themes:
Reducing Single-Use Plastics
50% of the of consumer plastics are designed to be used only once, providing a momentary convenience before being discarded. Eliminating single-use plastics, both from design chains to our consumer habits is a critical first step to beat plastic pollution.

  7. I have been browsing online greater than three hours as of late, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me.

  9. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My blog is in the exact same niche as yours and my users would definitely benefit from a lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Thanks a lot!|

  10. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a awesome job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!|

  11. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your site. It appears as though some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Thank you|

  13. Excellent blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed here?

  15. I believe everything said made a ton of sense. But, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean BLOG_TITLE is kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to get viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.|
