Architecture Biennale 2018 Blown glass and stainless steel
The concept was first created as a maquette during the artist's visit to The American Academy of Rome in October 2017. Later, Climate Change's design concept was submitted to the Venice Architecture Biennale. The work's theme of water and placement near a canal at the Palazzo Mora was reminiscent of the rising tides. It is placed between two open windows allowing sunlight to shine through the bubbled glass.
Climate Change now exists in its permanent home at a private residence in Seattle, WA. It has been fitted to withstand the outdoor elements. You can see from the last photograph, it illuminated at night.
