Photographs of the artwork, Hot with a chance of a late storm, 2006

This artwork was featured in Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, 2007

For the first time in 10 years, The People’s Choice Award and The Kids’ Choice award went to the same work, on the last day of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition at Bondi yesterday. Both adults and kids voted for the melting ice-cream van, officially titled “hot with a chance of a late storm”.

It was conceived by a New York and Sydney based “creative collective” called The Glue Society, whose representative, James Dive, said yesterday: “Sometimes to make a point, the best way is through humour. Obviously the public have responded, which is great and hopefully now the people that need to hear, will listen.” The director of the exhibition, David Handley, added: “The inventiveness of the piece is brilliant. What a bonus to combine a superb piece of visual humour with all of our concerns about global warming.”
