An art installation that deals with pollution and climate change from an international perspective.

Project Description

Climate change, a central theme within “Hues of Contamination,” underscores the urgency of addressing environmental crises like water pollution and its connection to industries such as fashion. By exploring the impact of climate change on water ecosystems, the exhibition highlights the broader ramifications on our planet’s health. It showcases how climate change exacerbates water scarcity, alters weather patterns, and intensifies the challenges of maintaining clean water sources. Through art and educational narratives, the exhibition aims to amplify the dialogue on climate change, advocating for sustainable practices and mindful consumption. By connecting the dots between climate change, water contamination, and industries like fast fashion, it urges a collective response to mitigate these interconnected environmental threats, emphasizing the need for immediate action to safeguard our planet’s future.


This project has been created in commemoration of the lives of all the victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, including two Ocean Bridge ambassadors, Danielle Moore and Micah Messent. We aspire to carry on their legacy and commitment to making the world a better place by creating long-lasting impacts with a firm commitment to driving positive change for the environment and our ocean. We will never forget the light that Danielle and Micah brought to the world and will continue to keep them in our hearts. To learn more about these two amazing people, please visit: Honouring Danielle and Micah  – Ocean Wise. This work is partially funded by the Commemoration Fund for Victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 Tragedy.
