Take a virtual tour of the HighWaterLine. You can see images and read stories from the project. Check out:

HighWaterLine was a public artwork on the New York city waterfront that created an immediate visual and local understanding of the affects of climate change. I marked the 10-feet above sea level line by drawing a blue chalk line and installing illuminated beacons in parks. The line marks the extent of increased flooding brought on by stronger and more frequent storms as a result of climate change.

During the summer of 2007, I walked, chalked and marked almost 70 miles of coastline. As I was out in the public creating the work, I had a chance to engage in conversations about climate change and its potential impacts.

Through awareness and action, we can change the future.

This project was produced in partnership with
The Canary Project.
