Waiting for Climate Change

That's the question posed by Spanish street artist Isaac Cordal in a collection of related art projects that includes "Waiting for Climate Change," which was displayed in Nantes, France last year. For his work, which combines sculpture and photography, Cordal creates cement figures meant to represent politicians and business people who, in his view, "absently watch the water level rise." Cordal then takes close-up photos of the sculptures half-submerged in urban areas and grim environments that nod to the consequences of inaction on the big political questions of the day, like dealing with rising sea levels and socio-economic inequality. Cordal's figures are usually quite small — about 25 cm tall — but for "Waiting for Climate Change," he scaled them up to life size and let them bob and float around the ramparts of the Château des Ducs de Bretagne.
