MOSA (Museum of Space Available) is a recently opened space in the coastal zone of Canggu, conceived by creative director Daniel Mitchell. Launched as an online platform during the pandemia, it took form during the following year, becoming an archive of bio-innovative creations, connected globally through the Web 3.0 ecosystem. The studio of ecological design Space Available, along with the Indonesian architects Sidarta and Sandjaja, transformed an old building in Bali into a futuristic musem dedicated to “circular design”, distinct for its facade of blue panels created with two-hundred-thousand recycled plastic bottles. The works held inside, the result of the brilliant minds of bio-designers, artists and scientists, were created by “upcycling”, a futuristic technique which consists in transforming any object or garment into a different product of higher quality - not just recycling but recycling into something improved - thus, “upcycling”. In the gallery on the ground floor, exhibitions are hosted, taking on themes regarding the mistreatment and the improvement of the planet - from the negative effects of plastic on the environment and humans in exhibitions like Plastic People, to the creative possibilities of fungus mycelium cultivated in labs in a future world without plastic refuse. The creations are both “physical” and not, such as NFT and video installations. On the same floor, there is also a shop offering “circular” products where original handmade artisan souvenirs can be purchased. On the first floor, it is possible to repair and give new life to your clothes at the “bar for upcycling” and the recycling stations. Here, there is also a library of bio-materials and a creative studio. “Artisan culture is at the centre of what we do and we couldn’t have done this without the Indonesian people,” affirms Mitchell, “It’s a true collaboration where everybody wins.”
