WIth London Monuments, Artist Shows Just How High Sea Levels Will be in 3111
London has a great history of public sculpture. Many of these monuments are often overlooked by this city’s residents as they go about their daily business. At a moment when discussions about climate change are omnipresent, the visual images associated with this issue tend to show vulnerable landscapes from around the world, but the situation for cultural landmarks at the heart of our metropolis is equally precarious. Plunge encircles noteworthy monuments in London with an illuminated blue line, showing the predicated sea level in 3111. At one level the viewer can extend an imaginary line from the monument across London placing themselves deep below the water’s surface, at another level the illumination suggests a protective shell proposing that we still have chance to change this situation.
