shown for scale

The basic idea for this project is simple: I want to sew a dress that will show, on my body as I wear it, the projected sea-level in Miami in the year 2050. This dress will be a visually powerful reminder of the state of sea-level rise and take my art out into the street to interact with the general public. My hope is that is can spark conversations and give the viewer a shocking reality check on what approximately three feet of sea-level rise will mean for Miami. As I move through the city, the dress on my body will show the realistic scale of the future waterline against buildings, roads, and other city places.
