|Michael Pinsky's Plunge, on three monuments in London|
Tuesday, 7 February 2012
In a collaboration among LIFT, Artsadmin.and IMAGINE 2020, artist Michael Pinsky was commissioned to create a new work of public art in central London. Today the project is launched and will remain on view through 4 March. Blue circles of LED lights have been placed on the Seven Dials Sundial Pillar, the Duke of York Column, and the Paternoster Square Column indicating the height of the sea level one thousand years from now, if climate change continues unchecked.
Though thousands of people pass these monuments every day, Pinsky's art allows people to see them in a new (blue) light.
Together, the Plunge monuments create an arc across central London, following the line of a future Thames that has swallowed much of the capital in its wake.
