Tom Scicluna presents Climate Sync, an inverted yet fully operational alternating time and temperature display unit installed above the main entrance to the Oolite Arts, Miami Beach. Situated five blocks west of Lincoln Road’s landmark rooftop time and temperature clocks, the commercially produced upside down sign critically invokes geographic, social and economic conditions at play concerning the given South Florida environment.
Tom Scicluna is a Miami-based artist. Selected exhibitions include: Some Aesthetic Decisions: Centennial Celebration of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain, NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, FL; New Work Miami 2013, Miami Art Museum, FL; Night Shift, Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, FL; and Rendez-Vous 08, Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon, France.
Scicluna’s Climate Sync is part of SEA LEVEL RISE: a series of site-specific temporary public art interventions exploring the topic of rising seas and its impact in South Florida organized by Art in Public Places of Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the University of Miami School of Communication.
