Seven Dials Sundial PillarPLUNGE, a public art installation by Michael Pinsky exhibited 26 days from February 7th 2012, invited Londoners a glimpse of sea levels 1,000 years to the dawn of the next millennium, to the year 3012, when the effects of runaway climate change will have drowned the city.

Pinksy demonstrated this by mounting blue LED rings around famous landmarks 28 meters above ground (the level, backed by the latest scientific evidence, at which Central London would be covered in water as sea levels rise). Learn more about it here.
