“Public art being relevant... simple, beautiful and effective.”
Visitor

The chosen monuments are ones that are passed every day by hundreds of thousands of people, whether tourists who stop to photograph them, or commuters who walk by every day without seeing them. Plunge offers an opportunity to see them in a new light, to think about their place in our history and in our cities.

Plunge
in London was created by Michael Pinsky and produced by Artsadmin and LIFT as part of the Imagine 2020 network programme.
