MIAMI - November 1, 2022 - (

S16 Gallery and Ballon Rouge Art Advisory are thrilled to announce that Banksy's 'Dream Boat' will be offered for sale at the forthcoming Context Art Miami, with a significant portion of the proceeds going to Choose Love, an organization that provides humanitarian aid and advocacy for refugees around the world.

'Dream Boat' was initially unveiled at Banksy's 2015 Dismaland art pop-up in the seaside resort town of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England. It was part of a functioning coin-operated game where guests could guide police boats to chase the 'Dream Boat,' a nearly 1 meter-long sculpture of a boat overflowing with individually painted refugees. 

In 2018, the 'Dream Boat' reemerged as Banksy took to Instagram to announce that he would be raffling off the piece for £2, with proceeds of the raffle going to Choose Love. The sculpture would be won by the person who would provide the closest guess to the sculpture's actual weight. 

The lucky winner with a keen sense of physics has now entrusted Ballon Rouge and S16 with finding a permanent home for the 'Dream Boat,' an exceptional art piece with an unforgettable story. The poignant piece comes with full certification from Banksy's own Pest Control Office.

"Banksy is a pioneer in creating art that goes beyond social commentary to become a proactive tool in the fight for social change and the causes it criticizes," says Jon Bucci, president of Ballon Rouge Art Advisory. "We are incredibly honored to have been chosen, along with S16 Gallery, to play a role in the story of this incredible piece and to help bring a full circle moment whereby a large part of the proceeds will go to the original organization for whose benefit it was raffled, Choose Love."  

Since its inception, Choose Love has supported nearly 4 million people and raised over $80 million for partner organizations worldwide.

"Dream Boat" by Banksy will be offered for sale as part of the S16 collection on show at Context Miami from Nov. 29 to Dec. 4, 2022.

TES and 3DOM (Singapore) Sign Circular Economy-Focused Battery Recycling Memorandum of Understanding

The two companies will work together to develop and grow Singapore's battery recycling and manufacturing ecosystem

SINGAPORE - November 1, 2022 - (

Singapore-based technology asset lifecycle services company TES and 3DOM (Singapore), the Singapore office of Japan-based battery producer 3DOM Alliance Inc., have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together to develop and grow Singapore's battery recycling and manufacturing ecosystem. 

The agreement was facilitated in part by the Singapore Battery Consortium (SBC). As the MOU moves forward, it will likely also involve battery solutions provided by Singapore-based GenPlus. 

3DOM (Singapore) is responsible for the production and supply of lithium-ion batteries developed in Japan by 3DOM Alliance Inc., with a presence in mobility and energy storage applications. 

This partnership investigates collaboration opportunities pertaining to 1) lithium-ion battery recycling services in Singapore; 2) the synergies between TES and 3DOM in their roles in end-of-life battery management in the region; and 3) energy storage system (ESS) integration opportunities to increase the sustainability of electrification in Singapore's increasingly circular economy. 

The MOU allows both companies to work together towards the listed goals. Additionally, TES will offer recycling services to 3DOM for the lithium-ion batteries it generates in the region. The two companies will also explore synergies between portfolio companies for repurposing and reusing batteries. 

"This MOU represents 3DOM (Singapore)'s commitment to Singapore's vision of a circular economy for batteries and the future of technology. We have confidence that with TES, we have the right partner to move forward with the responsible handling, repurposing, and recycling of batteries and battery materials in Singapore," said Mari Matsushita, Chief Product Officer of 3DOM (Singapore). 

David Lee, Chief Strategy Officer of TES, added, "We are delighted to have been selected by 3DOM (Singapore) to be their partner in recycling and closing the loop here in Singapore. This MOU represents what we are certain will be the first of many positive steps in creating a closed-loop system for battery materials in Singapore and the wider region."
