Drowning NYC
2010. Mixed media, dimensions variable.

This experimental fiction addressed rising sea levels due to global warming and its impact on NYC's urban population. The project provided inspiration on climate change justice in NYC, forewarning new economic and social dynamics driven by rising sea levels. The fiction was told by actors and narrative devices over the Internet and in the public spaces of a few selected Manhattan neighborhoods as 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.
