A People's Archive Of Sinking And Melting
Organized by Amy Balkin
An ongoing project beginning April 4, 2014
Southern Exposure is proud to house A People’s Archive of Sinking and Melting, a growing collection of contributed items from places that may disappear due to the effects of climate change. Objects represent locations that are or might be impacted by the physical, political and economic impacts of changes such as sea level rise, coastal erosion and desertification.
Together the contributions are a collection of community-gathered evidence, a form of public record. As of early 2014, the archive contains contributions from locations including Anvers Island (Antarctica), Cape Verde, Venice (Italy), Kivalina (Alaska), Nepal, New Orleans, New York City, Panama and Tuvalu.
