MANILA – In 2017, a massive “dead whale” installation was unveiled in Naic, Cavite to bring attention to the accumulation of plastic trash in bodies of water across the globe.

Two years later, a reworking of the installation is on display at the front lawn of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) to once again remind the public about plastic pollution.

A new element was added to the installation titled “The Cry of the Dead Whale,” which may be viewed until May 26. 

A “dead baby whale” was placed inside the belly of the installation to represent the millennials who will “inherit the future of our oceans.”

“The Cry of the Dead Whale” was unveiled on Thursday as part of CCP’s Earth Day 2019 celebration.
