At ArtCenter/South Florida, "Climate Sync" by the British artist Tom Scicluna will reach millions of people at one of America's busiest pedestrian attractions

MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 8, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Art Intervention "Climate Sync" by the British artist Tom Scicluna (based in Miami), will be exhibited for a year at ArtCenter/South Florida, delivering the message that our relationship with the environment is out of sync.

Scicluna's work is part of the series of site-specific public art interventions exploring the topic of rising seas, organized by Art in Public Places of Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the University of Miami School of Communication.

On view May 2017 through May of 2018 at the entrance to ArtCenter/South Florida, 924 Lincoln Road Mall (between Jefferson Avenue and Michigan Avenue) on Miami Beach. The outdoor Lincoln Road Mall is one of America's busiest pedestrian centers, attracting more than six million people per year.

Climate Sync, created by the artist Tom Scicluna, is an inverted yet fully operational alternating time and temperature display unit. The commercially produced upside-down LED display critically invokes geographic, social and economic conditions at play concerning the given South Florida environment. The art intervention will remain on view for twelve months, through May of 2018.

Scicluna’s Climate Sync is part of "SEA LEVEL RISE," a series of site-specific temporary public art interventions exploring the topic of rising seas and its impact on South Florida, organized by Art in Public Places of Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, and the University of Miami School of Communication.

Climate Sync is meant to alarm passersby who are accustomed to seeing the nearby time and temperature landmark, a traditional clock on the rooftop of the 407 building on Lincoln Road (located five blocks east of Climate Sync's installation). The original mid-century clock has been familiar to pedestrians for decades. Climate Sync's message serves as a counterpoint to the traditional landmark clock, and a wake-up call to citizens with its startling upside-down temperature and time display.

The artist who created Climate Sync, Tom Scicluna, is based in Miami. Some of his other exhibitions include: "Some Aesthetic Decisions: Centennial Celebration of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain," at NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale; "New Work Miami 2013," at Miami Art Museum; "Night Shift," at the Bass Museum of Art; and "Rendez-Vous 08," at the Muse d’Art Contemporain de Lyon, France.

Continuing a trajectory of contemporary artists' radical engagement with ecology and environmentalism, Art in Public Places of Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, and the University of Miami School of Communication, are pleased to announce SEA LEVEL RISE, a series of site-specific temporary public art interventions exploring the topic of rising seas and its impact in South Florida.

Located at scattered sites throughout Miami-Dade County and ranging from installations to film screenings to event-based interventions, artworks will take place throughout a year of programming that continues through May of 2018.

In an effort to bring broader awareness to the topic, each artist has been paired with a student(s) from the University of Miami School of Communication to produce a short documentary video on each project as part of their class curriculum. Support for SEA LEVEL RISE is provided by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
