Flood Protection: An Ongoing Land Art Work

Ephemeral trenches are shaped by hand forming an illustrative line that fills with water from the rising tide.

The temporary structures are meant to mimic environmentally protective gestures on a small scale, emphasizing the need for care from rising sea levels due to climate change.

The structures are made in anticipation of the tide and there is an element to which they also serve as time keepers.

The act of making is also a way of mitigating climate anxiety, as sand itself is used often in play therapy settings.
