The Ocean Imagineer’s Work Studio
ArtScientist-In-Residence Cesar Jung-Harada’s passion for ocean technology, net zero sustainable futures, and impact innovation has found a temporary home at ArtScience Museum. Take a glimpse into his space where artist’s studio, science lab, and creative workshop collide. Discover how he was inspired by his father and the ocean, the methods he employs to get from sketch to prototype, and the creative ‘mess’ that follows him wherever he goes.
Having conducted multiple public engagement and education programmes at the museum, Cesar is developing large-scale prototypes of some of the revolutionary designs devised by his workshop participants – the aim is to reinvent sea transport and explore new sources of power.
On selected days Cesar will activate the working space, tinkering on future prototypes as he would in his private workshop. Visitors will get the chance to see his prototypes come to life and witness a truly creative and inspiring work-in-progress.
- Shape-shifting Sailing (with Protei) aims to revolutionise sea transport design, taking biomimetic design inspiration from sea creatures in a bid to increase energy efficiency and safety.
- Ocean Solar Hydrogen aims to provide clean energy to coastal communities by using solar power to produce hydrogen gas from seawater.
- Ocean Train proposes a new sustainable approach to global sea shipping by adopting the modular principle and energy-efficient physics of freight trains.
- Indigenous Future Outrigger designs sea vessels of the future by finding the balance between new technology and indigenous cultural knowledge and wisdom.
