Ocean Optimism: The Tiny Made Mighty

Location Information

Come get a selfie with this cephalopod! This 12-foot-tall, Big Blue Octopus cyanea sculpture at Seaport Village draws attention to Marine Protected Areas as an example of a sustainable way we can coexist with our oceans.

Inspired by the world’s premier Ocean Sciences Meeting in February 2020, Seaport Village and the Port of San Diego have invited artist Jessica Ling Findley to produce a series of immersive art experiences to bring science to life through art at Seaport Village from December 2019 to February 2020. As ocean vitality becomes more critical with the changing climate, these works, produced with input and data from scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Birch Aquarium, explore how stories of Ocean Optimism can inspire us all to work together for a sustainable future. These immersive experiences invite audiences to think about the future of our oceans in new and creative ways.
