In most cases, we are not aware of certain truths until they are shown in a graphic and direct way. One of those truths is the climate change.
It is necessary, therefore, to pull imagination and inventiveness to shed light, in a liethic way in this case, on frightening problems that are going to be future realities.
The line that separates the lies that we do not want to recognize, and the truths that begin to show their terrifying consequences, is very fine and shines with LED lights.
Within the framework of the Outer Hebrides Islands of the west coast of Scotland, two artists have created luminous facilities that border houses and delimit the fields of a coastal town and that are of a disturbing beauty.
Pekka Niittyvirta and Timo Aho are the architects of a series of installations gathered under the title of “Lines (57 ° 59 N, 7 ° 16 W)“; Finnish creatives have created this work for the Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Center in Lochmaddy on North Uist Island.
The objective of the installation is to mark with the LED lights the heights in houses, fields or bridges that would reach the water if, to the storms and the tidal rises we add the effects of a climate change that is a sign of the many measures we have to take against global warming.
And here is a video about the art installation. A really interesting idea to understand all the risks we could be facing in the near future:
Is the idea quite graphic? Do you see clearly the devastating consequences that would be in the short term if we do not start doing something?
Judge it yourselves.
