Today’s Solutions: March 03, 2024

When facts and figures can’t deliver the urgent climate change message, art can serve as a vital vehicle to get the message across. Speaking of vehicles, Argentinian conceptual artist Leandro Erlich unveiled a provocative art installation featuring more than 60 “vehicles” made of sand that are stuck in a traffic jam on Miami Beach.

Seemingly made out of compacted sand, the sculptures are partially buried into the landscape, giving off the illusion that they are being slowly submerged underwater — a nod to the reality of rising sea levels caused by climate change.

The installation, which Erlich calls The Order of Importance, is especially poignant in the Miami area, considering that the city is one of the many coastal cities around the world threatened by flooding from rising sea levels. If you happen to live in the Miami area, you have until December 15 to check out The Order of Importance.
