A rotating sign with the words “climate” and “change” has been placed outside an art gallery in Northampton to highlight the issue of global warming.

Glasgow-based artist Ellie Harrison has designed the spinning sign, which has been placed outside NN Contemporary Art in Guildhall Road,

The art gallery is one of four venues across the UK hosting the signs throughout 2015.

The on-going project was initiated at Two Degrees Festival in 2011 to ‘promote’ the issue of climate change and the consequences of excessive consumption.

The sign is affected by the weather conditions and aims to attract attention of passers-by by highlighting the issue of climate change.
