Politicians Discussing Global Warming by Isaac Cordal
They whom we trust to lead us are unfortunately a highly ambitious and opinionated lot. We should respect them -- and demand that they respect us.
This is one of several sculptures by Spanish artist, Isaac Cordal around the theme of political inaction over global warming.
According to InHabitat: "Cordal is famous for tackling big political issues through a tiny medium. In his series “Waiting for Climate Change,” Cordal created a set of ephemeral and partially submerged installations to draw attention to rising sea level change. Laced with black humor, these grim and apocalyptic scenes show the consequences of inaction and apathy to environmental issues. The theme of rising floodwaters and drowning are themes repeated throughout his work that reference both climate change and the state of our sinking society."
