PLUNGE

created by Michael Pinsky and produced by LIFT and Artsadmin as part of the IMAGINE 2020 network.

Plunge is a simple, elegant statement placed on three monuments in central London. A string of low energy blue LED lights wrapped around each monument marks a time, 1000 years in the future, when sea level rises have changed the city beyond recognition.
The monuments are ones that are passed every day by hundreds of thousands of people, whether tourists who stop to photograph them, or commuters who walk by every day without seeing them.

Plunge offers an opportunity to see them in a new light, to think about their place in our history and their place in the city.
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.

‘We were delighted by the positive response to Michael Pinsky’s Plunge, a beautiful arts installation co-produced with Artsadmin made possible by our membership in the IMAGINE 2020 network. Being part of this pan-European network enables us to tackle the global issue of climate change, possibly the most pressing issue of our time, by producing exciting and ambitious art of a larger scale and wider platform than we could achieve on our own.’
