MeshMinds at Lush x Seven Clean Seas Campaign: Let's Talk About Plastic Pollution
Yesterday, MeshMinds was at Let’s Talk About Plastic Pollution, a joint community event and talk organised by Lush Singapore and Seven Clean Seas, and co-hosted by WeWork. Part of the #WeCleanSeas campaign, the event raised awareness about the impact of single-use plastics on the ocean and marine life, and more particularly, how Singapore gets affected by plastic pollution in the waters that surround us.
At the event, MeshMinds promoted the immersive VR experience, Water Bodies created by Adeline Tan. Water Bodies is an interactive, virtual reality installation that highlights the encroaching presence of microplastics in our drinking water. Through exploring a virtual human stomach swarming with brightly coloured microplastics, participants shoot these fragments of microplastics within one minute. The game hopes to raise awareness on microplastic pollution that exists not just in our oceans but in our bodies as well.
We certainly had a blast learning more about how we can do our part to save the seas and showcasing our work at the event yesterday! We would like to thank the speakers, mentioned below, for all their insights:
- Thomas Peacock-Nazil - Founder, Seven Clean Seas
- Stephanie Dickson, CEO and Founder of Green Is The New Black
- Emily Curren, PhD student with The Tropical Marine Science Institute, National University of Singapore
