“Ocean Cube" exhibit offers commentary on pollution

Published June 4, 2019


An article in The New York Times about an oceanic pop-up titled “Ocean Cube” reports the show, created with sustainable practices in mind, is a collaboration with organizations that include the UB Fabrication Workshop and the UB SMART Communities of Excellence. It takes visitors underwater in a technical simulation filled with bioluminescent sea creatures and is on display in New York City through August. 

The article notes that “scraps from the fabrication workshop, like a repurposed safety window, were incorporated into elements including the exhibition’s sign. Leftover materials from the creation of the jellyfish were used for other elements.”
