SEA CHANGE is a series of exhibitions and programs presented in collaboration with the South Carolina Aquarium to raise awareness of our enormous plastic waste problem and the detrimental effects on our planet. SEA CHANGE features the exhibitions Aurora Robson: The Tide is High and Chris Jordan: Midway at the Halsey Institute. Jordan’s breathtaking imagery helps us recognize the monumental effects of plastic waste on distant ecosystems, and Robson’s work provides strategies towards intercepting the waste stream and upcycling discarded plastics into new objects. Aurora Robson will also have a piece exhibited at the South Carolina Aquarium.
