Taking The Plunge

Michael Pinsky's public art work Plunge, currently on show on three monuments in Central London, imagines a time 1,000 years in the future when the effects of runaway climate change have led to a sea level rise of 28 metres, completely transforming London and the world. How can we avoid this predicted future, and globally combat climate change and environmental damage? This discussion will look at which areas of influence might have the greatest effect art, religion, law or politics.

Michael Pinsky will be joined by other speakers for a discussion including Dr Giles Fraser, former Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral, and Joe Hall, head of campaign for Eradicating Ecocide.

Dr Giles Fraser was Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral from 2009 until his resignation in October 2011 in protest at plans to forcibly remove Occupy protesters from its steps. As Canon Chancellor, he fulfilled the role of a canon residentiary with special responsibility for contemporary ethics and engagement with the City of London.

Joe Hall is Head of Campaigns for Eradicating Ecocide, campaigning for an international law of Ecocide which would make CEOs and our Heads of State legally responsible for the Earth.

Michael Pinsky is an artist whose international projects have created innovative and challenging works in galleries and public spaces. He created Plunge in response to a commission for a public climate change project by LIFT and Artsadmin.
