In collaboration with DTU Sustain, SUPERFLEX has placed a sculpture in Copenhagen Harbor. Entitled As Close As We Get, the work is simultaneously an experiment, a home for microorganisms, and an artwork. Above the surface, visitors will able to appreciate the artwork from the shore, and below the surface, marine life will find a place to gather. DTU Sustain will test the sustainability of the material for underwater construction. The knowledge generated from this research will contribute to SUPERFLEX’s larger Superrev project, which is a collaborative plan to build 55 km2 of reef in the Danish oceans. ⁠

This experiment is conducted in collaboration with DTU Sustain and By & Havn. Supported by Statens Kunstfond.
