Love Is The Highest Economy

An extra­or­di­nary art­work on the façade of the build­ing that func­tions both as alter­na­tive Christ­mas lights and urgent reminders of the cli­mate crisis.

LOVE IS THE HIGHEST ECONOMY OF LIFE is a series of low voltage LED, illuminated text sculptures, originally installed by Still/Moving at different locations around Glasgow for the duration of the recent COP26 conference. The works were made with various community groups around the country during 2021, as well as indigenous representatives and leaders, and with delegates at COP itself. Here, they are presented together for the first time as a message of hope and caution at a time of year when ideas of peace, goodwill and love come into tension with conspicuous consumption and excess.
