Drowning NYC
2010. Mixed media, dimensions variable
This fiction informs the audience about rising sea levels due to global warming and how urban populations will cope with it. This experimental form of tactical transmedia fiction was told by actors and narrative devices staged over the Internet and in the public spaces of a few selected New York City neighborhoods. The genre is theorized by the artist as Recombinant Fiction, a political and pervasive form of fiction, which proposes new pedagogical instruments, innovative activist strategies, elaborate media experiments, cutting-edge forms of theatre and cinema, and questions about perception and the construction of daily reality.
