Sustainable Singapore Gallery: March 7th - April 18th, Marina Barrage, Singapore
Plastikophobia is an immersive art installation made from 18,000 plastic cups collected from local food centers across Singapore to raise awareness for single-use plastic pollution.
Artists Von Wong and Joshua Goh teamed up with Social impact strategist Laura Francois and almost a hundred volunteers over the course of ten days to bring this project to life.

91% of plastic isn't recycled
Just because something is put into the recycling bin, doesn't mean that it's getting recycled.
The best solution, when possible, is to become plastikophobic - or simply to avoid using plastics when possible.
Use art to kickstart research into disposable plastic cups usage in Singapore, creating an immersive space to spread the feeling of Plastikophobia.
More about the project:
Von Wong was invited by the High Comission of Canada to host an exhibition at the Sustainable Singapore Gallery (SSG).
While chatting with his friend Laura Francois, they came up with the idea of creating a brand new installation. As part of their sustainability initiatives, CDL graciously offered to step in as a sponsor.
The National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore heard about our efforts and stepped in to help coordinate and facilitate the collection of single-use plastics across the country.
