Plunge

London has a great history of public sculpture. Many of these monuments are often overlooked by the 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 this metropolis is equally precarious. Plunge encircled noteworthy monuments in London with an illuminated blue line, showing the predicated sea level in the year 3012. At one level the viewer could extend an imaginary line between the monuments 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.

Commissioned by Artsadmin and LIFT as part of the Imagine 2020 network programme.
