As Water Rises is a participatory project inviting individuals to identify themselves in relationship to land elevation and proximity to water. Recognizing similarities in the complex ecologies and environmental inequities between global coastal cities, the project seeks to connect individuals and communities impacted by eroding shorelines and rising water levels. As Water Rises proposes the assembly of a traveling archive of tactile and emotional strategies that can exist in multiple locations or travel as a library of resources along the world’s coasts.
