plunge installations londonIf you've passed through the Mall, Seven Dials or Paternoster Square recently you may have noticed that some of the monuments in those areas now have a blue band of light around them. So what does it mean?

Well the new installations have been fitted by artist Michael Pinsky for his new Plunge series which aims to highlight the effect climate change could have on our future. Pinsky looks ahead to 3012 to show us where the height of the oceans will sit if nothing is done to stop it and while his predictions are sad to be a tad on the extreme side he hasn't half brightened up some of London's monuments so make sure you check them out next time you're passing through the areas.
