Drowning NYC
2010. Mixed media, dimensions variable.

This experimental fiction was about rising sea levels due to global warming and how NYC's urban populations will be impacted. The project provided inspiration on climate change justice in NYC, forewarning how rising sea levels might drive new economic and social dynamics. The fiction was told by actors and narrative devices over the Internet and in the public spaces of a few selected Manhattan neighborhoods through a socially engaged and pervasive form of fiction. The genre was theorized as Recombinant Fiction, which proposed new pedagogical instruments, innovative activist strategies, elaborate media experiments, and cutting-edge forms of theatre and cinema.
