Tom Scicluna: Public Structure

October 22nd, 2019

Now on Public View

A group of recently decommissioned City of Miami Beach submersible saltwater pumps are presented as an imposing ready-made public sculpture. Part abstract infrastructure, part documentary object/s, the formerly invisible and heavily corroded submersibles physically make real, and very much present, the immediate material and infrastructural effects of sea level rise upon the given Miami Beach environment. Public Structure is realized in conjunction with the City of Miami Beach Public Works Department. 

Public Structure is now on public view, just outside of the Department of Reflection's Main Office on the lawn in Collins Park
