Professional: Winning Entry: The Sinking House
The Sinking House - A project by Extinction Rebellion, designed to create a globally iconic image to educate about Climate Change.
The image represents the disastrous realities of projected sea level rises, increased storms and the effects on normal people living normal lives.
Set against a backdrop of some of the most illustrious buildings in London, housing businesses most responsible for, and with the most power to change, the Climate fate.
This photo is a call to those corporations to make the changes that are necessary.
It also represents a stand of solidarity to people whose lives are affected by increased flooding and future sea level rises.
The rise in sea levels is largely attributed to the Greenland ice sheets melting. The rate of melting recorded this summer was not predicted until 2070. At its peak, ice melted at a rate of 140,000 tonnes-per-second – equivalent to 2000 river Thames.
