Do you know what is glowing underwater? Visit Glowing Ocean at S.E.A. Aquarium from now till 1 January 2020 where you will discover the science behind the signs and signals given off by the vibrant tints of the ocean. 

Find out the hidden truth and why is the ocean glowing, they could be signalling the adverse effects of climate change.

Embark on the journey to the interactive installations put together by various artists at the 4 zones at S.E.A. Aquarium to find out more about the brilliant colours of the ocean and bleached corals that act as warning signs on the adverse effects of global warming, especially on marine life. Immerse yourself in these installations and learn how you can do your part to make a positive difference to marine life.

The Hidden Truth at Zone 1 – At this zone, you will reveal the hidden messages using a UV torch. Learn the effects of climate change on this mural by Band of Doodlers. 

When Corals Fade at Zone 2 – Healthy corals are vibrant, watch what happened when rising temperatures cause colourful corals to bleach and eventually die at this special installation. 

Kelp Me! at Zone 3 – Kelp is important as they are like underwater trees providing shelter and food to the marine animals. Experience how the dying kelp forests can no longer protect marine life from harsh conditions at this surreal forest of dying “ghost” kelp which is designed and created by artist Kelly Limerick and hand-crocheted together with 20 volunteers. 

Beautiful Warning Signals at Zone 4 – Discover how harmful when glowing plankton and brilliant red algae thrive when temperatures increase through this special artwork that interacts with light in a special collaboration by Milan-based art/design duo, Carnovsky (Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla) and Singapore’s Kult.
