A rising tide lifts all boats
Sea level rise has arrived to Miami. How will ecological, economic, and infrastructural systems fare as climate effects sink in? What are the destinies of cities and species as the seas overtake the shores?
AGUAS ALTAS was transmitted from a boat navigating the Miami River and South Florida canals. The floating station docked at different ports along the way, hosting live interviews with sea level rise experts and informants, sharing sound samples and archive clips, and streaming experiments by local musicians.
